When my little brother was in the seventh grade, he was bullied. Numerous kids would pick on him and make fun of him for being a little weird and goofy. He never told us the extent to which he was bullied, just a few things that sounded like kids being jerks. Then one day, we got a call from the Principal saying that my parents needed to go in and talk to him. My little brother told his friend on Facebook that he was going to kill himself when no one was home because he could not take the mental abuse anymore. His friend told her mother who immediately got in touch with the Principal and then notified my parents. My brother saw a therapist and the kids who bullied him got in trouble. I never knew the name of my brother's friend, but I thank God that she took his threat seriously because I truly believe she saved his life. Now he is doing great and I cannot imagine my life without him; my brother is my best friend.
