When we were in school, a bully was someone who made you regret having to come to school in the morning, somebody who went out of their way to make your life a little more difficult. Somebody who was just mean spirited for no good reason. We all experienced them, if not directly we watched as someone else endured the wrath of a bully. They were a part of the fabric of our schooling. With the bullies of our day, you either fought them or tried to ignore them until they outgrew their foolishness. But today, a bully is something entirely different. Today, a bully can be someone who either takes a life, or causes someone to feel like they need to take their own.

Does school bullying cause suicide? By Maureen Healy...
Over the last few weeks, I have had a flurry of calls from "stressed out" parents because their kids said to them: "I am going to commit suicide if you make me go back to that school. I want to end it all. My 'friends' at school laughed at me when I was being teased and it was horrible. I hate life."

Kids picked on Ben Lewis because he was different.
They always had, his family said, but it was worse since he and his mom had moved to Lincoln from Omaha in October. But nobody was expecting what happened Saturday, when the 15-year-old boy with Asperger's syndrome found a pistol, went near the shed in his grandparents' backyard and shot himself...
Announcing a contest for teenagers to inform us about bullying and how to address it.
Please help spread the word by encouraging young people to apply by writing an essay of up to 500 words about bullying or how to address it. Teachers are welcome to make this a class assignment, but kids should only submit their essays if they are really prepared for the essays to be published with their names attached. It can be cathartic to share these experiences, but also embarrassing, so think this through carefully. And remember, too, that this is for a newspaper and must be the truth – no exaggerations whatsoever! If you’re talking about someone else, you can use just a first name or initial, to protect their privacy.
