When the word “bullying” pops into people’s minds, they might think of the physical aspect of it, not what can occur after someone has been pushed to the very edge. Opinions of this epidemic can change from “kids will be kids” to “this must stop!”; but it really depends on what you do about it.


The image above is a collage of the most televised suicides, each person’s description will be said, while this is not every suicide, it is the ones that have raised universal impacts in the television and newspaper worlds:


Left, top corner: Amanda Todd, aged 15, died from suicide from being sextorted/harrassed online and physically attacked


Middle, top: Tyler Clementi, aged 18, died from bullying from video circulating around his college


Top, right: Rehtaeh Parsons, aged 17, died from suicide, was pulled off life support after being raped and bullied, a picture circulated around of a boy doing an awful act to Rehtaeh


Top, right corner: Kelly Yaomans, aged 13, died from suicide after being bullied


Bottom left corner: Phoebe Prince, aged 15, died from bullying


Bottom row, middle: Katelyn Nicole Davis, aged 12, died from hanging and recorded it live after bullying online and an alleged assault from a family member


Bottom row, second middle photo: Rebecca Sedwick, aged 12, died from jumping off a water tower due to online/offline bullying, charges were brought against two girls and than dropped


Bottom, right corner: Conrad Roy, aged 18, died by suicide after a battle with depression, encouraged to kill himself by his than girlfriend, his name is tied with the Massachusetts Texting case


We can’t let this go on! We can’t let more people die from suicide because of the actions of others. This is NOT “kids will be kids”, this should be addressed like murder.

We need better education for schools, for parents. We need better emergency room programs for suicide attempts/self-harm attempts. We need online education about cyberbullying, physical bullying, workshops for parents, teachers, and students on how to recognize the unseen symptoms about suicide, we need televised aspects on how the media reports suicide and how we as the public can stand up for one another.
