Let's work together against bullying and help bring the teen suicide rate down to zero

R.I.P. Jasmine McClain (ANOTHER 10 YEAR OLD!!!)

with 2 comments

Her name was Jasmine McClain.  She was just 10 years old.  She was being bullied.  And, now, she’s gone.  There’s a tribute page set up for her on facebook.  Go, leave your condolences for the family.  As you can imagine, their grief right now is overwhelming.  When I read this article last night, all I could do was sit in a stunned silence.  We need more and more people getting involved with this cause.  As you see, it’s reached epidemic proportions.  We need more people sharing this blog with their friends (or, any other similar information outlet!!  As long as the job gets done!!!!)  But, right now, we all need to pause and go to Samantha West’s aid.  Her beautiful 10 year old daughter isn’t coming home any more.  Rest in Peace, Jasmine McClain.

  1. This prompted a status on TMiYC’s Facebook page:
    I hate to start the morning on a sad note, but I’d hate even more for Jasmine’s loss not to be marked.

    Starting very young, a lot of people feel guilty about being bullied or abused, as if it is their own weakness that’s the source. They remain silent and endure the torture as a testament to their own–not someone else’s–failures. Yesterday I talked to a woman at work who said it’s for this reason that she checks with her kids every month to see if they’re having any problems at school.

    I’m going to take a page from that woman’s book when Li’l D is older. I’m going to make sure my little one knows it’s safe to talk to me, and that bullying isn’t something ANYONE should feel guilty about enduring, because it is flat-out is not their fault someone else feels so weak they need to create false illusions of power in this way.

    • Thanks for taking the time to stop by and read my entry. Hopefully, you’ll come back for more. I like your blog. You’re doing a very nice job with it. The Jasmine McClain story was, indeed, a very sad one.
