    This Week’s Best of the Web, Featuring a Teen’s Letter to Bullies

    Hey girls! Happy (almost) weekend!

    One of our goals here at PI is to bring you the best of the best on the web each week, so we’d love to hear what you are interested in knowing about. What do you love and want to see more of? Let us know in the comments!

    Inspirational story of the week:

    We’ve been talking about bullying lately (you saw the video, right!?). Because it’s an issue that’s important to you and to teens all over, we wanted to share a snippet of a letter a 17-year-old girl wrote to bullies. It doesn’t address anyone in particular, just any teens who pick on others. Check out the first portion below and then read the rest here.

    “Dear bullies,

    I have always wondered why you choose to believe that putting someone else down, would put yourself on top.

    You stand there waiting for another weak prey, someone who you can easily threaten and manipulate. You invest your time and energy into diminishing every ounce of confidence in your target to the point that they feel worthless of themselves.

    It almost seems that ripping someone off of their dignity gives you pleasure.

    You can send out your threats, your messages of hate and use your keyboard as a weapon and your screen as a shield, but behind the words lays a person desperately seeking attention.

    The hurtful words you say and the actions you do are the reason someone today will go home crying, thinking that they are the problem, when in fact you are. You may think that sending a hate message to one person is no big deal, but often that hate will reciprocate into more and more people hurting each other just to relieve their own pain from being hurt. Inside every bully is someone who has been a victim of bullying.

    Many innocent lives are lost because of people choosing to get revenge on others who have bullied them. Suicide rates have risen. Bullying only leads to more bullying.”
