Really great message. I wish now the <a href="http://eisskg.com">scloohs</a> will decide to act on behalf of those being bullied or harassed to address the issue, problems and perpetrators, and I wish we'll pay more attention to those at risk for depression and possible suicide. Too often parents, friends, <a href="http://eisskg.com">scloohs</a> miss the real signs (my sister and brother-in-law did) to find out the truth too late with a failed attempt or worse a successful one. These take years to happen and often giving obvious signs that counseling won't change. We need to find avenues for those at risk to speak in private without fear of the often bad reactions by parents (ditto sister and brother-in-law). We have to change the environment of those at risk than just them, otherwise it doesn't get better until they leave one way or the other. Any wonder why there are so many runaways? It sure solves that situation, but not them, only their environment.We need safe environments for those at risk, home, school, public, etc. Otherwise, it's received as just another empty promise.Anyway, thanks for the link.
