    it definitely should be a crime! i’ve been bullied since i was in kindergarten!! and my school never did anything about it. i have thought about suicide a lot of times and i got to watch the people i love leave this world because they just couldn’t take the bullying anymore. if you’ve never been bullied before you don’t know how much of a scar it leaves on you; and the more and more it happens the bigger and bigger the scar gets. what she’s doing is one of the smartest thing i’ve seen. we don’t need to lose more people because of ignorant people. it hurts like hell and i’m amazingly happy about this. if president obama doesn’t do anything about it either i will be ashamed.
