The world has an impact. You have an impact.
She lived in British Columbia, was a student just like you and I. She was 15. Her life cut way too short by bullies, brought into her home by the power of the internet.
This is a call to action. A call to realize. We must realize that the words, that actions, the things we say and do have an impact. Someone is always listening. Something you may find funny, maybe hurtful and traumatizing to someone else. You don’t know the path they’ve walked, the story they tell or what they’ve gone through.
It affects the entire world. Not just those in our back yard, but those across the globe too. It’s time to stand up, stand up for one another. The bullying must stop. It doesn’t matter what age you are, what gender, what you background is. We need to work together.
