A Canadian teen documented her bullying with a YouTube video in which she held up index cards that told her story.
The last cards say simply: “I have nobody. I need someone. My name is Amanda Todd.”
The video has garnered the attention of many including the premier of British Columbia, Christy Clark.
"No one deserves to be bullied. No one earns it. No one asks for it. It is not a rite of passage. Bullying has to stop. Every child has to feel safe at school," Clark said in a You Tube video posted Thursday.
On Wednesday, Amanda Todd’s body was found in her home, police in the Vancouver-area city of Coquitlam said. She took her own life.
She was 15.
Ok. I lied. I’m going to offer a comment: F*ck! She was 15 f*cking years old. Bullying is not ok. Bullying kills.
