Daniel was a Typical High School Kid

I watched this video and my heart sank. Imagine then, how the mother/family and the neighbour felt. The mother says after her son used a shotgun on himself, the sight she came across was “horrific”. I cannot image what she has been through, and no doubt, what she continues to go through. As a mother myself, I pray my son is never a subject of bullying, nor will he ever become a bully himself.

Bullying needs to stop.

One day, Daniel received a text from a bully that said, “Why don’t you take one of your precious guns and do the world a favour and go kill yourself.”

Daniel replied, “You won’t have to worry about me anymore. I’m going to go home and kill myself.”

The bully texted back, “Put up or shut up.”

I worry a lot about my son going to school. “Will he fit in?” as well as “Will he be bullied?”.

Time and time again, I read about individuals taking their owns lives. Whilst this is sad enough, they seem to be getting younger and younger too. It was just the other day, I read how an eleven year old took his own life after a text from a bully encouraged him to do so. This is so heartbreaking.

Together, we must put a stop to bullying.
