It Gets Better

Suicide is not a success story, it is a tragedy
They are not heroes, they are victims. . .



Just recently, a young boy of 14 took his own life. Jamey Rodemeyer. Jamey has been bullied a lot for being gay; bullied by his peers, his schoolmates and recently even by the people from the internet. He posted an encouragement for bullied teens this month, telling them that it will get better but sadly, it did not got better for him.

Many reacted to his death and many has sparked awareness on teen bullying and suicide. I hope someday no kid or anyone has to take their own life because pain has been consuming them too much. Weather you are being bullied or you know someone experiencing it, take action! Be the agent of change. A friend is much much better than a blade, don't hurt yourself, the effect is only temporary. Remember that there are people who loves you so SO much, the world is a beautiful place, don't give up. Taking your life away is not the solution, be the change the nation needs.

Pfft, yeah, sing me another tune why don't ya?
Nice message but, hey. I've been bullied my whole school career and just started highschool, and the problem NEVER got better. Only worse.
It only gets better once it's over and you don't have to see the assholes anymore.
End of story.

This piece would be perfect for a new project we are developing -- an online gallery for artists who have been bullied or who explore the theme of bullying in their work. It's called the You Will Rise Project. Check it out here: [link] and let us know if you would be willing to share this piece on the site. Read the "Submit Your Work" section of the site for details. Thanks!

I also heard about this, and I think it's great that Lady Gaga is standing up against it as well. If other celebrates took action, we could solve these problems quickly. Very sad, what happened to that boy :/ RIP jamey.

It's always nice when celebrities take notice of it, it gets exposure. I appreciate Lady Gaga's involvement in it too. Yeah, it's really very sad :'c
