Bullying is one of the most disgusting things that there is. Making yourself feel good or look good by trying to ruin someone else's life, even driving them to the point of doing something like this.
I'm glad Michael's still alive, and I hope he recovers.
People have said a lot of things about the Brony community, some less flattering than others, but we come together when something like this happens. To remind a young boy that he's not alone, that no one is, and that we're all here praying for him.
As someone who has considered suicide on three separate occasions, I know what it's like to feel that kind of pain, like it'll never end and it feels like it's consuming you.
People say "Oh, 11's too young for someone to want to die." No age is too young or too old for that. Never ignore the warning signs when someone feels like their life isn't worth living.
Friendship helped me out of that time of darkness in my life, and I know it'll help Michael out as well. He has his family and thousands of people keeping him in their hearts and their minds.
My heart goes out to you, my fellow Brony. Those people who bullied you are cruel, single-minded, and hateful people. You're better than they'll ever be.
We're here for you, buddy. You've got your whole life ahead of you. I know it <3
