On September 7, 2012 Amanda Todd uploaded a video on YouTube where she shares about enduring years of bullying in school and online. A little over a month later, October 10, she was found dead. While authorities have not officially ruled the death a suicide, they do not suspect foul play. Here's her stirring video:
After learning of her story and viewing the video above, I was heartbroken. I thought of my good friend who's life has had its share of heartache. That same friend was inspired to share her own story and hopefully offer hope to anyone who feels alone.
