Amanda Todd: Teenager Who Had Chronicled Her Bullying On YouTube Commits Suicide
Amanda Todd posted a heartbreaking video on YouTube five weeks ago detailing her battle with online harassment and bullies. I've posted the video below. But this 15-year-old young girl gave in to the battle and committed suicide. Amanda hung herself on Wednesday October 10, 2012.
I don't watch TV because I'd rather read, but when I was shown this vid I was angry, very saddened and in tears that another innocent has been taken by the angels to a place where the cruelty, the pain, the bullying will never touch her EVER. A place that's Eternal, but not among us. A place on earth that should have treated her with compassion, experienced first love, solid friendships and lived a good long life.
I'm struggling to stay in this world, because everything just touches me so deeply. I'm not doing this for attention. I'm doing this to be an inspiration and to show that I can be strong. I did things to myself to make pain go away, because I'd rather hurt myself then someone else. Haters are haters but please don't hate, although I'm sure I'll get them. I hope I can show you guys that everyone has a story, and everyone's future will be bright one day, you just gotta pull through. I'm still here aren't I ?
