    Welp. :(

    Wanted to write a post about relentless bullies who cruelly go after people around them, from all angles possible... and never think twice... but then felt like I am one of those people too..

    But I do sometimes think twice. So then I felt like I'd only be writing about myself, and that is hypocritical. :( I'm very angry though, at others, right now... who are attacking a memorial page for Amanda Todd (a teen who committed suicide, after making a video on youtube detailing some of her bullying issues, which seemed to involve 'relentless' bullies who followed her no matter which direction she went to try and get away).

    It seems that the "masses", a great majority on her memorial age (located on Facebook), are spending their time photoshopping her image next to suicide methods in mockery, or are putting catch phrases next to her name that make fun of her choice to commit suicide and are maybe a play on words of other popular slogans for companies or brands.

    They are posting images of her topless (she is a minor, so this is child pornography), and again commenting on it, or putting comments on the image itself... to mock her and basically publicly humiliate her, even after she is gone...

    They are relentlessly commenting against anyone who defends her, or anyone who comments on how tragic it is.... and alongside that are calling her the very derogative "W" word and the "S" word that refer to a woman's actions as being more than promiscuous and very outlandish in sexual nature. They are saying that is all she is, and all she was, and that she deserved to die.

    They are saying she deserves no sympathy, and are even going so far as to compare her death, and manner of cause... to soldiers dying, starving children, others who were killed/murdered/raped... saying that compared to those situations, hers shouldn't even be considered, and she should just be buried and no one should ever discuss her again, except to mock her.

    It goes on and on and on and on.... and I am so ashamed that these people, both under-age kids, people my age (young adults), and actual adults all think this is acceptable behaviour.

    I am ashamed that they believe this is "normal" to behave this way, and to belittle someone who is already deceased, and mock her, and I even saw a comment by a young adult... commenting on the parents of this child... and let's just say the comment was very sexual in nature and vulgar.

    It is just..... so sad to see again, this is the world we live in... and after reviewing this page in length last night, I felt so heartbroken.... and if I were in this girls' position (Amanda Todd, the suicide victim)... I too, likely would not be here writing this... these people are cruel, relentless, and have no compassion, no shame, no tolerance, no understanding, no ability to do anything that would actually make them a human being....

    Animals are nicer than this even... this is a level of low, that time and time again I continue to see "humans" stoop to... and as I just said, animals are more compassionate, and caring than this... so this level is the lowest of low for the entire planet, in terms of any living organism... being better than what I am seeing here.

    There is so much more that I could say and might... I have spent a great deal of my time trying to get this page taken down, by the way... first by reporting individual pictures and posts... but many are still up even after reporting... Facebook didn't think they violated any terms...

    So I have gone after the full page, this time linking facebook with actual posts and pictures where the graphic content is...


    Ugh.

    I am upset about this, because of so many reasons.... because I have faced what Amanda did, and I have faced what I am seeing now after her death... and I have faced people who are so relentless and cruel... but perhaps not always on the level I am seeing yesterday and today as with this page.

    It's disheartening to see that even as an adult, that I am, it really is not "better"... because the same people still exist, these cold hearted murderers... that think they are normal.

    Thank you Samara for choosing to do the right thing - so many people see something that is wrong and yet DO NOTHING which is what gives bullies their power. You have chosen to DO SOMETHING instead, setting an example many should consider as example the next time they see people behaving in a cruel way.

    I find it sad people do these things. It's immature and stupid. :(

    Humans are so hateful of their own species. For example, some people will take a dog off the street but never another human. They fear more for a dogs life then a homeless teen or adult. (I don't want to rant, but there is just so many things that in my opinion is stupid of humans to do or not do and very much backward)

    I don't like to consider myself human for some of those reasons..

    This is so sad and tragic. Vigils for Amanda Todd and other targets of bullying are being held around the world tonight. Maybe everyone who reads this could pause for a moment to think about Amanda and her family and others who are being or have been bullied.

    There was recently a very well documented study about the social influences of the internet. Beyond the obvious concerns, similar to those people who gaze at a fatal accident on the parkway, my other concern is for those who are fragile and see this abomination and might consider it 'normal'...at the end of the day, we all have to sleep with ourselves...and I can tell you from first hand experiences, that having a full heart and a non-conflicted soul is sometimes the only things one has to get your through the journey...I feel so sad for all concerned...the child, herself, her friends and family, and those that are so pathological that they have to express their socio-pathy in this way

    The people writing these things are such worthless pieces of shit. If you act like a bitch, you're gonna die like a bitch. Those "people" are going to get what they deserve.

    I know it sounds hypocritical saying that they are worthless just like they did to Amanda, but they actually deserve it. If you're going to act like a worthless piece of shit, then you're going to get treated like one.

    I've seen a lot of it on Facebook and it makes me sick as well. And how on earth can FB try to claim it doesn't violate any terms when people post her topless picture? It's child pornography, that's sickening.

    It just saddens me so much that there are so many people acting like it's a good thing that she's dead. I think people forget that everyone makes mistakes. Of course she made mistakes (like sleeping with that guy when he had a girlfriend). But...so what? How does that justify vitriolic hatred and constant bullying? It doesn't at all. And flashing when she was twelve? If anyone should be vilified for that, it should be the pedophile who wanted her topless pictures and then systematically harassed and stalked her for years.

    I think online, people just hop onto the bandwagon more than they would otherwise...that's all I can think. It's horrible, though.
