I watched Amanda Todd’s tragic video message today. Exactly one month and eight days after it was first posted and only five days after she committed suicide.
Words can’t possibly express how it makes me feel. But that’s irrelevant anyway. What’s far more important than expressing our feelings and condolences in my opinion is what actions we take going forward.
Amanda’s video wasn’t the first of its kind, nor is it going to be the last. Bullying has always existed, but never has it been so exponentially powerful and permanent as in the era of social media.
