I think his friends wanted to be popular. They didn't care about him or his feelings. I think he didn't commit or even think about suicide because he knew things would get better and there was always another way out. It took a year to stop the bullying because that was when the victim got help freom an SOS, student offering support.

Sorry in the last sentence, it's supposed to be from not freom.
Lucy Jenkins's comment, January 30, 2013 9:18 AM
Yes, I do think that they wanted to be popular but they also thought he look different because of his race. I think suicide wasn't an option because he believed that things would get better and there would always be better days. I took them a year to stop because that was when he got help from SOS, student offering support.

This article is written for parents whose children were or are bullied. Most of the time parents don't feel the same pain as children do. They don't understand what it is like to be bullied.This article is very helpful for parents yet sometimes there are no solutions. This article is very helpful for parents yet sometimes there is no solution. I think it is wonderful to get bullying articles out into the world so people can read them and wont bully.

I just watched her video. Its so sad. I, no, WE need more uplifting events in our lives.

I wouldn't have written a diary because I would think someone would find out about it and I would get bullied even more. I might have shared it on YouTube because maybe the boy would have seen it and taken the Facebook page down or said he was sorry. for her I think it was good because she was noticed. I would have most definetly friended her or commented so she wouldn't go unnoticed. I would have said how horrible that boy was and how i was so sorry for her,That I wish she was still here.
Ellie M.'s comment, January 30, 2013 9:19 AM
Before I read you comment, my views were yes, I would have written a diary to let my feelings out, but I understand your point of view. With both perspectives I don't know whether or not I'd write a diary. When you said, "the boy would have seen it and taken the post down", I disagreed. I think it would have made him feel god and would have given him what he wanted, but I also agree that Amanda needed to do it to get her story out there. I also would have commented on her Facebook page saying the same thing.

The narrator isn't rude for not signing the card, but the narrator not signing the card shows that Billy hurt her feelings enough for her not to sign the card. It also tells you that she felt no sympathy for those who had shown none for her. I would sign the card because I would feel bad about for him losing his mother. But, a card couldn’t save his cruel personality, only he could change that. It sounds like a very realistic story because children are insensitive towards others who are obese, and often feel as if they should be bullied.

This story seems realistic, yet not. It is realistic beacuse of the actions of the kids. For instance, you might not sign the card if you hate someone. It is not realistic because I don't think kids would play with dead birds.

Jake Jamison's curator insight, January 24, 2013 8:42 PM

The card is for your "deepest sympathies" for Billy and his family. Dorothy pauses for a minute because Billy had been so mean to her, and then doesn't put anything. I think I would of been the same as Dorothy because he had been so mean to her. I would think this is a true story. My reasoning is that here is your usual bullying. Billy calls her names and then Dorothy doesn't do anything. Then you have Dorothy who returns the bullying when she doesn't sign the card. I would think many victims of bullying would try to bully the bully back.
