Okay. So. Here’s the deal. The other day, one of my best friends found out that someone had made a hate page on Facebook about her. Needless to say, she was absolutely devastated, though she isn’t one to openly show emotions like that at school, and even then, it’s only to her really close friends. It was really silly.
When I found out, two thoughts went through my mind:
1) Facebook is dumb
2) What on God’s good green earth would compel someone to do something like that? That’s downright low! Lower than whale poop and whale poop is at the bottom of the ocean.
So, I was ticked. To the point that I was shaking and everything. I really care about this girl and whenever someone messes with one of my friends, that means instantly that they are messing with me too. I promised this here friend of mine that if necessary, I would blow this thing way out of proportion to get her the justice that she so rightfully deserves. This is a major form of cyber bullying, and I will not tolerate it.
The only thing that made me even angrier, is the fact that our high school’s administration thought that simply sitting down and having a “talk” with her and the alleged bully would resolve the entire thing. It won’t. I think they know it. My friend was emotionally disturbed by the entire incident. It was gross. It was mean, and it was simply abhor able. The person who made that hate page, will no longer be in contact with me or her.
So, friends, what is the moral of this story?
Words hurt. Words can even kill. I mean—look at all of our gay kids, killing themselves because of someone’s bigoted view point on life. In fact, sometimes their bullies even think that they would be better off dead than alive because all they are doing are polluting the world.
So, lets all make a resolution, right here, and right now, to end this. Let’s all watch what comes out of our mouths. We might just save a life.
