Memes, Her Finger, and My Backpack: YOU WILL DIE IN SEVEN DAYS uhree Wake it or leave it. TTStoryTime "Okay class, it's the end of Anti-bullying week. I will now hand back your graded research papers." She walks to and fro, delivering the students their reports. When she arrives at my desk, she scowls at me. "Terome, you handed in a blank sheet. Please see me after class." Indeed I did hand in blank piece of paper. When the bell rang for dismissal, the students quickly gathered their things and raced outside to the awaiting busses. I sighed, picked up my backpack, and walked to the front of the teachers desk. Ms. G crosses her fingers and produces a fake smile. "Would you care to explain why you didn't write your report sir?" She asks. "You told me to write about cyberbullying." "Yes, that was your assignment." "But I didn't completely understand what I was supposed to write about." "You were supposed to write a detailed report on cyberbullying and the effects." "But it doesn't exist." "Excuse me?" "Cyberbullying isn't real Mrs. G." She looked dumbfounded for a second. When she regained her composure, she leaned back in her chair and crossed her arms. "And why is that?" "Just close your device or your eyes." "Terome I'm afraid it's much more complic-" "How?" She stuttered momentarily. "If you get cyberbullied, you deserve it. If you kill yourself because of cyberbullying, that's natural selection, and you're a retard." "ENOUGH!" For a second I though SHE was pulling out the M16. Her face was flustered and A N G E R Y. "What would your mother say about this?" "We were just watching Amanda Todd's videos last night, we couldn't breathe lol." Her face turned to stone. "Well here's what's going to happen," she said. "Go write another report on a topic of your choosing, and turn it in to me on Monday." "Anything?" "Anything." "Bet." I slid my backpack off and tore out a piece of notebook paper. At the top I wrote: "My Will To Live." "Finished." I said. I handed her the paper and left the class.

Alive, Memes, and Taken: Texas Teen Commits Suicide in Front of Her Family After Being Bullied @balleralert Texas Teen Commits Suicide in Front of Her Family After Being Bullied - blogged by @MsJennyb β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Earlier this week, a Texas teen killed herself in front of her family after months of cyberbullying. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € BrandyVela, 18, was a senior at Texas City High School and had been a victim of bullying for her weight. However, the cyberbullying kicked up around April. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € "People would make up fake Facebook accounts and they would message her and she wouldn't respond and they would still come at her," Vela's sister, Jackie revealed. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € "They would say really, really mean things like, 'Why are you still here?' They would call her fat and ugly. She was beautiful, absolutely beautiful; the only thing people could find to pick on her was her weight." Vela exhausted all efforts to avoid the bullying, including changing her number and filing police reports. However, the officials couldn't help because there was no traceability of the harassment, since the bullies used an app. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Ultimately, the harassment was too much to bear. On Tuesday, she sent a text to her sister that read, "I love you so much, please remember that, and I'm sorry for everything." In turn, Jackie called their parents and grandparents, who rushed to Vela's Texas City home, where they found Vela alive holding a gun to her chest. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € The family pleaded with Vela, begging her not to pull the trigger. However, Vela's mind had already been made up, reports state. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Vela was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € As a result, Vela's family mourns the death of their beloved Brandy. They also hope for stricter laws against cyberbullying and greater awareness for the issue to give meaning to her death.
