We’ve heard of several incidences lately involving bullying. Kirk Smalley is fighting against bullying after his 11-year old son Ty committed suicide. Tyler Clementi killed himself after having a sexual encounter exposed over the internet by his college roomate. Such tragedies are prominent in the media not because of the bullying itself, but rather because of the unfortunate results of such behavior. It seems far more common today for a young person to commit suicide after being the target of a bully’s power-trip. Why is that? Bullying has been around a long time for sure, but is it that much more intense? Or is suicide a more prevalent option for people wanting to escape their terrible reality? Chime in and tell me what you think.
