too much teen suicide~ bullied? call to talk to someone now

call this number to find someone to talk to completely anonymously, if you need to talk..... Kids Help Phone 1-800-668-6868

It's heartbreaking how easy it is to find images of Teens who have killed themselves due to bullying, for me to make this video it took no time to find several examples. Even one is too many and here are a litany.

We need to find out what is it about a school that finds itself talked about because students are accepting of a special needs teen and offering him the winning shot in a basketball game, as opposed to another school somewhere else which say...finds themselves glaring in the media spotlight only because their students were allowing bullying that got so bad someone killed themselves?

What are we teaching our children?

Remorse too late, is too late. How do we inspire kids to greatness now, not after someone dies? How do we get them to want greatness for each other and to help each other achieve it so that ultimately they ALL can live in a better world?

Until we figure it out there are sad and unhappy kids who don't know yet that it will get better, it REALLY will get better if they just reach out and take a hand, make a call and talk to someone. It will get better and you will come out stronger.... so fight.
Call and someone who will help you fight.
