Introduction and Welcome

While this site is/will be a work in progress, I have a heavy heart for people in general. I have set this site up to help build awareness of bullycide. I admit myself that I was not at all aware of its happenings and effects until just recently. I do not remember kids being so cruel when I was in school [I am not that old] so it has come as a shocking revelation for me. Bullycide effects so many youth and, consequently, so many parents that something should be done. What have we become that we do not know how horrible our kids are treating other kids? What kind of people have we become that we not only condone the hate, we participate?

Bullycide is based on the idea of being bullied so much that one is driven to commit suicide. Its affects are seen in both school kids and executives alike. Bullies exist, after all, everywhere.

I don’t have a horrible memory of school. On the contrary, I loved it. I enjoyed spending time with my friends, having laughs, and making memories that I will have for life. It is disheartening to know that others cannot have that experience, but it should not mean that they have to be brought to the point where they think suicide is the only option.

It is hard to bottle up the emotions that these kids have at that time and brush them off as teenage woes. When I was in school, we had the hard times, but never did I ever witness or participate in acts of extreme hatred. It is one thing to taunt a classmate, but to continue to knowingly hurt them at their core is beyond wrong.

Bullycide is an epidemic it would seem, and it does not just affect our youth; it can affect anyone. Anyone can bully and be bullied, and often enough, this is what leads to suicide. That anyone could reach the point where they feel that their life is not worth living based on the opinion on those who do not care for them is disheartening.

It is easy for us as adults to tell our kids that things will get better because we have already lived that life, but more than that, many of us never had to endure those hardships. We never had to fear going to school each day or deal with the pain and embarrassment brought on to us by our classmates. Yes, we know that the pains of being a teenager pale in comparison to life’s issues, but as teenager, bullying is a life issue. And for some who think they cannot make it out, it is the only life issue they have to deal with…and it is a shame they think the cannot make it because they are not given the proper guidance or help.

Yet, what do we tell our neighbors? What do we tell our co-workers? And how could we just let others bully others? As adults? Really? Where are the real men and women who know the value of a person’s life no matter how small a role they play in ours?

If we help our youth deal with bullying, we prepare a foundation for them to deal with the world and can stop bullycide in the process. If we could just instill in them that those who bully us are usually just extremely jealous or have a lot of anger built up inside of them that they have to project it on anyone who will take it, we can prepare great men and women for our ever-developing nations.

Isn’t your child’s life worth the time and effort? No parent should ever have to bury their child, but no parent should ever have to feel the pains of knowing that their child was hurting so much that they could not even get help from the ones who were always supposed to be there for them.

I have made it a personal mission to grow awareness on bullycide, but at this moment, my time is limited. It pains me to know that because time is so precious of a commodity, I should be able to allocate it better for this journey, but at the moment, I simply cannot. If anyone is willing to contribute to these efforts, please do not hesitate to email me.

I want to get the word out about bullycide so others can help counteract it. Unlike cancer or AIDS, this is something we can actually stop without the need for advanced science. After all, we don’t have to have a degree to spread love and unity.
