I recently watched this video and posted it on my Facebook shortly after it went viral. It conjured up many emotions, as hurtful memories from childhood of being bullied and being a bully flooded my mind.
What I found interesting though was how quickly some people brushed off this video due to rumours that this was just some kid who was lying and making a mocking video to get attention.
FYI, he isn't a fake, and glad to know he is doing much better.
BUT, if this was a stunt, will the received message change? Bullying is a problem, and it sucks. There are kids cutting themselves, and they are living with physical and emotional scars.
Some people have courage to share their story with the world with a good heart in hope that someone is listening. Others just want the attention, to be funny, to laugh. Regardless if whichever it is, what has happened in the course of this viral video is that the message remains the same: bullying sucks.
