This week, I have been watching a series about bullying and teen suicide entitled, “13 Reasons Why”. It touches on the seriousness of the effects of bullying on our teens… even leading to suicide. These abuses that our children encounter in schools are detrimental to it’s victims. It leads many teenagers into deep levels of darkness where they feel that they have no way out… except suicide.
Now, we have all encountered levels of bullying at our schools and even our workplaces… but it does not have to continue. We all need to treat everyone the way that we would want to be treated. One simple act of kindness may save a life. I encourage all to watch this series and bring more awareness to this problem. We never know if our simple act of kindness toward someone may change their life.
