The other day a wonderful person and fellow deviant,
committed suicide due to bullying. She was only 13. This was her final journal:
goodbye foreverfor those of who are wondering if i am milkshake, no i am actually a friend sharing this account (yellow)
I am so sorry, but this is my final goodbye. I dint see a point to this world, such cruel things.
I am so sorry everybody, but i wont be active for the rest of my life, not for anything at all.
I just wanted to say my last goodbye im sorry i cant . ;(((((((
Goodbye glitch, im sorry i said those things about you.
Goodbye everyone, i hope you live in a world where you are appreciated
Goodbye forever -Yellow
I didn't know her, but I wish I had. I wish that I had had the opportunity to know and talk to her about it, and so that we could have been friends. Its terrible, how people treat each other. How someone thought that bullying, pushing someone to their BRINK AND BEYOND was no big deal, I will never know.
What I DO know is that this, should not be swept to the wayside.
THIS HAS TO STOP. Are things not bad enough already? Bullying should be put more in the spotlight, and not something likened to "kids just being kids." Its NEVER that. Its kids being little pieces of shit and tormenting another one because they have nothing better to do than see someone squirm and cave in on themselves. The kids who did this should be in jail and their parents should wear a symbol, letting everyone know that they are the parents of a BULLY, who didn't have enough parental fortitude to make sure that their child didn't hurt anyone else.
And schools need to be held responsible and have criminal charges filed against them. Especially the teachers. Because teachers don't do SHIT when they see someone being bullied, because they are more worried about their own hides if they protect another kid. Its not the teachers who suffer its the one being ignored when its happening, and make no mistake, they KNOW its happening.
I'm sorry, I really am. I don't want this to be a rant but I'm FUCKING LIVID. Not at Yellow, God no, but to the ones around her who could have done nothing, but didn't. Please. PLEASE...If you see someone bullying STEP IN. You never know, you could save that person's life......Rest in Peace Yellow and know that you are loved, even if I or other people didn't get a chance to know you. We are a family here on Deviant Art and to hear that one of our own saw no other way out hurts us deeply. But you are remembered, and forever loved.
