I did this so quickly. learned just today that 2 sexual assaults happened in my high school district while I was a sophomore… 2 years after they essentially taught us girls that if we got sexually assaulted, it was our fault. The principal tried to cover it up and the assaulter only got benched during the sport for a while. the victims got blamed and hurt by their peers. it’s what they were taught to do, anyways.
I feel too tired to move.
This beautiful girl killed herself on 10/10/12. She was harassed for mistakes she had made on Facebook. She was stalked by a man because she made one bad decision. Then she was physically attacked for another mistake that she made.
For any of you her assert that she she deserved to die. I demand that you look in to your past. If Someone put your entire life up in Time’s Square, would you not cringe? Wouldn’t you feel embarrassed and completely alone?
What if same person constantly harassed you over the Internet where everyone could constantly see your greatest mistakes. To have everyone comment on it—completely humiliating.
I demand that justice be served in her name, yet nothing shall return her. Even if no legal justice can be done, I feel that those who harassed a 15 year old girl should acknowledge their culpability in her death. So brazenly these people called for her demise, yet now the cowards hide and deny any responsibility.
Such cowards deserve no pity, and in time they shall pay for their wicked actions. If only in their resides an eternal guilt. I hope they channel this guilt for good, not that drives them to suicide. Enough lives have been lost and enough families destroyed.
I dedicate this poem to all people affected by suicide.
I drift away,
My soul departs,
All that’s left is the aching of my heart.
Long ago we used to lie
Side by side staring up into the vast sky.
Your hand intertwined with mine,
Walking down the moonlight streets.
Now I’m alone,
Never again shall my heart fly
Into the moonlight sky.
Ghosts clutch my heart and wring it dry,
Sweet green eyes can no longer cry.
The arms of death embrace my limp form,
Holding me close like you did before.
I drift away,
My soul departs,
All that’s left is a silent heart.
Please send your thoughts to the families and friends of those killed in the embassy attack in Libya. Ambassador Stevens and 3 other Americans were killed while trying to evacuate fellow employees from the embassy to avoid being hurt by the protesters outside. One of the three Americans is Sean, he had worked in FSIMO for 10 years and was a father of two children. The identities of the other two Americans remain unknown. Please denounce all further violence! Enough lives have been lost on all sides! However we shall never give into terrorists!
Thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and families of Texas A&M shooting. Rest in peace and get well soon.
I finally have the internet on my laptop!!!!! Freedom here I come!!!
I write one page of masterpiece to ninety one pages of shit.
