We are Deeply Saddened….
We at KidThrive.org and OneSeventeen Media write with heavy hearts at the loss of so many bright young lives that have been ended due to bullying within the last week. In the recent media you have seen the faces of these teens whom have cut their life short and you have heard their stories. It is our hope with our work we can create a positive, respectful, and responsible dialogue to prevent such tragedies, but also to create a life line for other teens that need somewhere to turn to.
With all the recent media reports and celebrity outcries, we hope that it will inspire discussions at school, in the home, and that your words will inspire. Your advice will let others know that they are not alone. Your words will help bring us a step closer to preventing further tragedy such as this. You may not realize it, but your words are powerful.
Suicide is never the answer, and should you or someone you know have thoughts of suicide, call 911 or a 24 hour crisis line such as the one offered by The Trevor Project.
