Amanda Todd was bullied to death. As digital citizens, we have responsibilities to respect, educate and protect each other. Take action against cyber bullying!
Stories like this always really touch me deeply. Although this subject might not be directly aligned with what I usually write on this blog, I felt the need to write about this because first I am a parent and as an active digital citizen, I strongly believe that we all have responsibilities to respect, educate and protect not only ourselves but also others as well.
I’m sure most of you have heard about Amanda Todd. If you don’t know her story, she sadly committed suicide last week at the age of 15 as a result of cyber bullying.
Amanda posted a YouTube video last month detailing how bullying (on and offline) began after an online stalker sent nude pictures of her to people she knew. Her video has now close to 4 million views.
