This does not only happen in school .... it continues when boys go in the Army. Many young men commit suicide because they cannot stand the humiliation of others, including that of their superiors.

I wish that the schools would start to counsel those who are being bullied. And I wish that schools would take stronger measures in reprimanding bullies and punish them according to their deeds.

There are bullies everywhere in the world, it's up to us adults to prevent the bullies, and support the abused children.

Kiddo, you don't have a million reasons to be here, you have a zillion reasons to be here, most of which you won't be aware of until you are much, much older... many reasons you will never know. You can't begin to know how much love is being directed at you by the many who have viewed your courageous video. You have more courage in your little finger, than the bullies have in their entire bodies. If you haven't already done so, get yourself some adult allies, at school, at home and even at a counselor center. You need to be heard for you are the special person, Yes special, who for reasons unknown, is carrying the negativity of others who manage their negativity by projecting it onto someone else, usually a sensitive type, such as yourself. Finding a positive release for that negative energy (no more cutting, sweetie) will help you as well. Thank god school (which must feel like prison to you) is only a temporary part of life. You have one friend? Maybe that's all you see right now... but I'm telling you now... you have many friends and we all send our love and positive thoughts to you and these things travel like electricity..... you don't get to see it travel from point A to point B but it's there.

This breaks my heart. I worked in a school for ten years and watched this happen to kids all the time. The school was so ineffective in addressing this problem. I watched it happen to my son and tried so hard to get the school to help. This problem has life long consequences for those who were and are subjected to it. I urge everyone to do what they can to put a stop to it.

This might be extreme but this is what I was resorted to. My son had been picked on constantly by this bigger, older kid. I talked to the principal and he did nothing. I went to the teacher and it still didnt stop. I went to the kid and threatened to beat him up if it didnt stop. It stopped

Are the one's doing the bullying that unhappy with there life that they have to do this!

I have to say that there are a lot of things that I don't believe is right, but even though I don't agree with it, I would never bully a child. I know what it's like to be bullied and picked on. I had it happen to me when I was in school many years ago. I would come home crying and it really broke my heart and I would try many different ways to have friends because I never measured up, but like Jonah I was stronger than that and overcame, but to this day I still have to struggle. But I'm so proud of you Jonah, like I've been told, keep your chin up, you are worthy.

My heart goes out to anyone being bullied, it is not very nice.

Sue T: Jonah is a child and children find it harder to communicate their problems then adults do. I was bullied as a child and I vowed that I would never let anyone treat me like that again. But it did happen in one of my first jobs and unfortunately for me it was the bosses that were doing the bullying. The only option they left me was to quit. Now I'm not saying that you should walk out of a perfectly good job with nowhere to go without exploring all your avenues first. Have you spoken to higher management? Because if you have and they are not taking you seriously then you need to go higher. Personally I could not take it anymore, I stuck the job out for a year and then one day, as I was walking to work, I decided that if my boss blamed me or gave out to me for one more thing that wasn't my fault I was going to quit there and then. And that's just what I did, by 10am that morning I had told my boss to stick his job up his arse and I walked out. It was the best decision I ever made, the weight that lifted off my shoulders was incredible. Yes, it was scary but I got another job after a couple of weeks. All I'm saying is don't suffer, if you have to go to the highest person on the ladder then do and don't take her shit, talk to her calmly and tell her how you feel, you never know she may not even realise what she is doing...
