The suicide of 15-year-old Canadian Amanda Todd earlier this month brought a renewed awareness to the serious business of bullying and today’s teen. Millions have visited her YouTube video that outlines her desperate plea. In stark black and white, she holds one card up then another. Each card, sometimes misspelled in a teen girl’s script, tells of her harrowing ordeal of the escalating bullying.
A friend forwarded an online petition that started circulating in mid-October asking the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Canadian Security Intelligence Service to bring those responsible for Amanda’s death to be held accountable. I sign the open letter. Enough is enough.
