Letter: Work together to stop bullying

Bullying should not be tolerated or accepted in any form says letter writer

The severity of bullying has gone too far and it needs to stop.

It saddens me that people are being verbally, physically and emotionally abused to the point that they can’t stand to be in this world.

To be driven into such a state of depression and feeling you’re worthless — nobody, in my mind,  should ever feel this way.

So let’s work together to help support those who need our help and educate the youth on how to make a difference, to make changes and to show more respect to others.

If you are a victim please seek help and be strong enough to hang in there. Hold your head up high because there are people who care and understand.

All I can say is stop worrying so much about what other’s think of you and try to look forward to a better, brighter future.

As school ends and you reach adulthood, life gets better and there is so much more to live for.

You are worth it! People make mistakes in life and if we learn from them they do not define us as humans.
