Canadian Teen Amanda Todd killed herself one month after creating a YouTube video asking for help and explaining her story. “I’ve decided to tell you about my never ending story,” the card in Amanda Todd’s hands read.
Fifteen-year-old Amanda Todd was found dead in a Port Coquitlam home at 6 p.m. Wednesday. She was bullied after a teenage male continued to harass her after she had sent pictures of her breasts to the boy.
The boy continued to pursue her even after she had left her school to continue making her life hell. He went so far as to make a Facebook page of Todd’s Breasts as the profile picture.
After Todd moved schools the boyfriend of another girl started up the bullying again forcing her into a life of depression and drugs. Following an incident where she was attacked and assaulted at the new school when she went home and drank bleach. she wrote: “It killed me inside and I thought I actually was going to die.”
After another suicide attempt, and more cutting of her wrist Todd continued to scream for help, while the cyber bullying continued. 5 weeks ago she created a video sharing her story and sharing one quote that has hit home with many saying “Everyone’s future will be bright one day, you just gotta pull through. I’m still here, aren’t I?”
Some teens even went so far as to say they are surprised she lasted as long as she did, considering how brutal the bullying was.
Let this tragedy serve as a reminded why people should take diligent action to stop bullying when they hear about it.
