I agree that bullying is a part of life and there are always bullies, however, when you are talking about middle school kids it's different. They don't realize that whats going on isn't the end of the world. They don't have the experience to deal with things the same way as adults do and they are dealing with vast amounts of changes in their bodies and hormones raging which affects their emotions. This young lady sees the news and sees all of the attention given to suicide lately and probably sees a way out of the torment. She doesn't realize the ramifications and affect it has on others most likely and so forth. It's a sad situation, and yes you have to deal with bullies all through life, but the way in which you deal with it and your ability to see past it changes as you get older.
