Just about everyone knows someone who has been bullied, in ways big and small. Understandably, though, many victims are reluctant to speak about their experiences. We found some who aren't.

I never really thought of bullying as that big of a deal; I always overlooked it when people talked about it. But it got my attention when my friend Casey May committed suicide because of it.
Afterward, I heard that she was bullied because of things that were posted on Facebook that should not have been said online. Around school, I did not notice that she was being bullied. She was always smiling and always the happiest girl around. But when people started telling me about it, I started getting worried.
I wish I could have known beforehand because I would have helped her. She had so many friends. I don’t know why she didn’t reach out to get help. She would have had so many people behind her giving her advice and help.
It’s just really sad that she thought the only thing she could do was kill herself. I don’t exactly know what happened and what was said, but I know it must have been pretty bad because of the ending.
I wish I could have done something to stop it, but it’s too late now.
