It’s beyond disheartening that there have been multiple posts on our blog in relation to suicide among young children.
Sadly, this has happened again. This time in Lynden, Washington—where Vylit Vander Giessen, a 13-year-old girl, was apparently a bullying victim and took her own life.
It was revealed shortly after the girl’s death that she was a victim of school bullying and online bullying.
According to FOX 13 News in Tampa, Florida, an online petition has been launched with almost 100 signatures of people appearing to be disgruntled parents, who are unhappy with the severe incidents of bullying that are taking place at Shields Middle School in Ruskin, Florida.
