"But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you." Valerie - V for Vendetta -
I start my blog (which yes I know I'm terrible at posting on, I try) with this quote from V for Vendetta because it is the first thing that came into my head last night when I read some Facebook posts about a young man that recently took his own life because he felt like he wasn't worth anything due to online bullying.
Bullying has never been, and never will be okay no matter the subject that is being bullied. You never know what that person has going on in their life. It shouldn't matter what someones gender, race, color, hobbies, or sexual preference are. It shouldn't matter if they're short, tall, fat, skinny, glasses wearing, deformed in any way, etc. Bullying is NEVER okay. Some may think that it is sometimes justified, but it's not, not ever.
It breaks my heart every time I hear about someone who has commit suicide. Whether it is due to bullying or not, it's a hear breaking subject, because someone out there felt like their life wasn't worth continuing on. If you know someone out there that is struggling with self worth for any reason please reach out to them and remind them that they are worth something. If you encounter bullying online, in the halls at school, at the mall, or anywhere. Please don't be afraid to step up for that person even if you don't know them.
I wish you all a good day, good luck, and Happy Holidays. And remember that I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you.
