Stop bullying and save some lives

Dear editor,

Everyday someone in the world has killed themselves because of bullying.

Dear editor,

Everyday someone in the world has killed themselves because of bullying.

Yesterday I watched a video of a girl whose sister got picked on and she was tired of it so she took her stepmom’s car and drove far away and drove into a ditch and hit a tree and died not long after. When I watched that, my heart hurt.

Just to think of the way the family and friends felt when that happened. After I watched that could not breathe. It was just that sad and heartbreaking.

So I thought every time you call someone a name they get one step closer to death. That just hurts me. Just to think of what I would feel if that was my sister.

I thought of it but then I remembered that there are my friends and family that love and care about me. My friends make me feel like I belong like I am important to them and it makes me happy to have them.

With friends and family there for you, I think you will make it. Suicide is not the only option.

And, yes, life is not going to be perfect. If you ever see someone getting bullied then stop them before it is too late.

Help stop bullying before it is too late!

Sticks and stones can’t break my bones but texts and

e-mails can hurt me!

Please stop bullying. You will save a life!
