Bullying: One More Tragedy
I just don´t understand bullying, I don´t understand the lack of respect, the non-appreciation of others... There is a golden rule as far as social relations are concerned: you should treat others as you would like to be treated. Period.
But things do not seem to work like this. Do you remember one post in this blog called "School is not a bed of roses for some students"? Well, here´s a similar story: Canadian Amanda Todd killed herself on October 10th (five days ago) after years of bullying and blackmail. She was 15. Everything started for her after a revealing photo of hers was passed around online.
She made this video to let her story be known and then killed herself. (Since this is a blog for learners, just for this time, ignore the grammar, vocabulary and spelling mistakes she makes and focus on the content of her message)
