Amanda Todd’s Tragic Story: A 15-Year-Old Commits Suicide After Constant Bullying [VIDEO]

Facebook

15-year-old Amanda Todd, from Vancouver, Canada, posted a video on her YouTube telling the world of her battle with bullies, depression and self-harm. She uploaded the video as a method of inspiration, that she could use it to benefit not only herself, but others who were dealing with similar circumstances.

But, just over a month later, Amanda took her own life.

Amanda posted her video, “My Story: Struggling, bullying, suicide, self-harm,” on Sept. 7 with this message:

I’m struggling to stay in this world, because everything just touches me so deeply. I’m not doing this for attention. I’m doing this to be an inspiration and to show that I can be strong. I did things to myself to make pain go away, because I’d rather hurt myself then someone else. Haters are haters but please don’t hate, although im sure I’ll get them. I hope I can show you guys that everyone has a story, and everyones future will be bright one day, you just gotta pull through. I’m still here aren’t I?”

As far as what changed between Sept. 7 and Oct. 10, when Amanda took her own life, is still unknown. But, the circumstances that led a beautiful young girl down this road are tragic.

We know that teenagers are going to be teenagers. They’re going to do and experience things at far too young of an age, but often can learn from their mistakes. But, making these mistakes and suffering intense hate and bullying for years, despite moving, counseling and medication, is a fate no human being should experience.

Amanda’s video tells a tragic story of a young life in desperate need of love, of friends and comfort.

Here’s the video. And please share Amanda’s story. Our kids and society deserve better than this.

A Facebook page, “Rest in paradise Amanda Michelle Todd,” was created Thursday and already has more than 25,000 likes with messages to Amanda.

Rest in peace, Amanda. Stop the bullying.
