Lakeland is not that far up County Road 661 from my house. It’s close enough to make the bullying-induced suicide of one of their youngsters a chilling shock. Rebecca Sedwick was only 12 when cyber-bullies encouraged her to “go kill herself.”
Just recently, I wrote a story for www.istopbullies.com/blog with eerily similar elements to a young girl’s suicide in England. Her name was Hannah, and she committed suicide at 14. She was cyberbullied and encouraged to kill herself as well. Both young ladies’ on-line use included the Latvia based http://ask.fm which allows anonymous posts.
