Amanda Scott was destined to kill her weak minded self.
Her name was Amanda Todd, and it's clear that you only possess a small amount of compassion. There are two possibilities here:
1) she was so starved for attention she decided to end her life in order to get it.
2) she was so depressed she decided to end her life to get away from it.
I watched her video. I saw her story. Someone doesn't go so far just to get attention. She was in need of serious help - and she never got it.
The responses all over Facebook and ATS regarding this tragedy is purely sickening. No wonder she ended her life...if that's the response I would
have faced, I wouldn't have been able to stand it either. When you have people killing themselves because of how they are treated by their own
species, for no legitimate reason, you have to think: what have we become that we are driving our own kin to say, "To hell with survival, I want out
What have we become? Stop blabbing about whether or not she should have done it, whether or not she deserved it, whether or not there were other ways
out of her situation, and just think. The simply fact she did it, that's some true desperation. And it was her fellow humans who drove her to that
Stop making excuses, stop pointing fingers and judging people, and realize: it's not just her. It's hundreds of people who were driven to destroy
themselves by other human beings. We're not the superior race. We're not the golden apple of creation. We're monsters. Plain and simple.
