QUEBEC — A 15-year-old Quebec girl committed suicide this week after years of bullying from her schoolmates. Marjorie Raymond killed herself on Monday in Ste-Anne-des-Monts, a small town in Quebec’s Gaspesie region. In a suicide letter released by her mother, the young girl blamed her schoolmates for her distress and noted she couldn’t handle the bullying that had been going on for three years any longer. “I have a hard time leaving this world, but I think it will be for a better world,” Raymond wrote in the letter. “It’s the fault of the jealous people who only want to destroy our happiness,” added the girl, before asking for her mother’s forgiveness for taking her own life.
A Facebook page mocking the teen's death surfaced on the Internet on Wednesday. One user posted a picture of a bloodied young woman slumped against a wall. As well, the webpage's main photo is a cartoon depicting a man hanging himself.

Sorry, but I cannot find it inside myself to feel for this child.
I grew up and never took my life, none of my childhood friends did either, none of my children nor their friends either.
Was this girl on unneeded meds, or just wired wrong, there are many things we will never be told.
I understand a teenage girl had her life story on the web, as proof she had a page, probably more, I saw the fishfaced pose she did...
Maybe her parents could have paid more attention or kept her from being on the web.
Might I suggest an "internet drivers license" for those who cannot handle the treacherous curves on the web?
Dunno, I do not have the answers but I know a troll is only as real as you allow them to be, if they manifest in the "real world" there are legal avenues to approach.

Kind of get the impression some school admins and parents really dropped the ball here. I really don't have much sympathy for online bullying victims... turn off your computer.
I'm going out on a limb here. You're an adult right?
You have NO idea that the digital world and RL cross over all the time.
Btw, save your sympathy.
Todays youth needs more than narrow minded codswallow.
