I think that a lot of people, when thy think of bullying, also think of suicide. I feel like lots of people don’t know how serious suicide is. It’s not something very passive and it’s not weak, it’s a desperate grab at happiness for someone who doesn’t feel it anymore. It’s something I never want anyone to do, and would never hope to inflict upon someone else.
Recently, a popular show called “13 Reasons Why” (it’s on Netflix) has been the latest talk. The show is about a girl who commits suicide, and she leaves tapes behind to tell the 13 reasons why she did it. Now this show has shown a lot of people how much words and action do affect people. People have said that the show out things into a very different perspective for them.
This is something we should be doing. We should be showing people the awful, horrible things that suicide can lead to. It’s not beautiful, it’s a tragedy. It is one of the worst things on the planet and we should do everything in our power to stop it.
