Lady Gaga promises to fight following teen's suicide
Jamie Rodemeyer's Online Guestbook:
It so sad to see such lovely young people gone forever.
Please tell if if I'm off, but exactly how much help are all the stories in the news about bullying doing? I hear stories about bullying almost everyday. There are stories of support, stories of courage, stories that you are not alone. Celebrities openly support kids who are being bullied, yet, the suicides continue. How much more can we do? What will make a difference?
For starters, things have to be taught at home. Parents/caregivers have to instill VALUES into the kids they are raising and keep tabs on what they are doing and who they are doing it with. Kids are watching way too much "put down" humor in the media.
It's national news now.
I noticed that Megan Meier and Phoebe Prince have put bullying in the forefront. Also criminal charges are pending against 3 bullies. Perhaps, they will become most hated.
Without a doubt! Its too accepted but when you're on the receiving end and you don't think its funny its like a never ending nightmare. its prevalent.
Thank God for this. What has to happen is people NEED to be brought up on charges for relentless bullying. Even if its a fine to the parents!
I posted a separate thread for the article about Lady gaga wanting to meet with President Obama to discuss bullying. I really hope this can happen.
there's one I posted like that the day it happened
You know, I'm usually an "everyone is entitled to their opinion" sort of person. But not now. This is what intolerance breeds. No child is born with a hatred for gay people, they are taught this by adults and society.
Lady Gaga's tribute to Jamie Rodemeyer:
Teens parents: After suicide, hes still being bullied
That's really sick! These bullies are no different from Osama bin Laden, 9/11 Hijackers, Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, etc.
If I had to guess what kind of bullies they are. They probably most resemble the South Hadley 6 or Jennifer Petkov.
it's a start!
This is so incredibly sad. I can't believe that after he died, these kids could be so cruel. What in the world are their parents teaching them?! Or I guess, what are they NOT teaching them?
