Bullying and peer pressure have devistating consequences for people..young and not so young....bullying especially for H.S.P.s (Highly Sensitive Person). One of my favorite movies is The Breakfast it delves into the social and psychological aspects of bullying and peer pressure.

This is sad. Poppy mut already have been unhappy as she was in foster care, the bullying must have been the final straw. The teachers should have picked up on the bullying and dealt with it.

Bullying is so terrible and other kids can be so cruel. Peer pressure is a dangerous thing...especially for those who are weak of heart. Thnks, Lone

SO SAD! She looks like many rose petals put together! What a tragedy! My heart is with her parents who must suffer so much pain! In our school we do have building wise student-teacher moderators and bullying is not accepted! Even a light incident will be dealt with and others take heed! Can the schools not do something about this?!?

Schools have to take more responsibility on weeding out the bullies, too many of our children are resorting to taking their own lives.Bullies should be banned period from mainstream schools and sent to reformed schools where they'll be with their own kind.
