Amanda Todd, How Could She Have Nobody??


Growth Central - Self Esteem
 

What bothers me the most is HOW CAN A 15 YEAR OLD HAVE NOBODY? HOW CAN THIS BE POSSIBLE?

From Youtube:  This is a very sad story of a girl who made one big mistake, and an even bigger one by taking her own life. Although it seemed as though Amanda's whole life was over to her, suicide is a permanent solution to an almost always temporary problem. It disgusts me how none of her classmates helped her through this tough time.


Stories like this pop up all the time, people have a major outcry for publicity and the issues with bullying, and yet, this still constantly happens.  

According To Wikipedia, Amanda Michelle Todd (died October 10, 2012) was a 15-year-old Canadian teenager who committed suicide attributed to cyber-bullying through the social networking website Facebook.

On 7 September 2012, Todd posted a video on YouTube in which she used a series of flash cards to tell of her experience of being bullied.In it she regrets sending an image of her breasts to a man who later circulated it around the internet.
Shortly before 6:00 pm on October 10, 2012, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police were called to her home in Port Coquitlam, to investigate what they refer to as a "sudden death".

They have since launched a full investigation into Todd's death.Police are conducting interviews, reviewing content at social media sites, and are actively monitoring pages. Christy Clark, the Premier of British Columbia, made an online statement of condolence suggesting a national discussion be made discussing criminalizing cyber-bullying. Todd was a 10th-grade studentat CABE Secondary in Coquitlam.
