There was a boy, we will call him Jonny. Jonny was a normal kid living a normal life. He had friends who cared, he had a community that loved him, and a family that listened! What could go wrong? A lot actually. Jonny had a secret, and he thought he could trust the people around him with it. So he shared it. He came out and said he was gay. He thought this would allow him to be himself. Instead, he was bullied. His friends that once cared were the ones laughing at him. That community that once loved him stared at him like he was a disease. Life kept getting worse for Jonny, and soon he felt like there wasn't anything left for him to do. One day after school he couldn't take the humiliation anymore and he committed suicide. Now this story doesn't just end on the sad note. Jonny's story impacted a lot of people and turned them against bullying! Now, there are news stories and movies all over showing how bullying can really hurt someone! That is exactly what we need today! We need to be able to educate people about bullying so that we can all stand together and stop bullying.
