Bullying


 Bullying is an awful thing that happens quite often sadly.I recently came across the video above called To This Day by Shane Koyczan that I feel has a great message regarding bullying.After watching it I decided to spread the word about two great books that people should check out.

13 Reasons Why
Jay Asher
Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers thirteen cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker, his classmate and crush who committed suicide two weeks earlier.

On tape, Hannah explains that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out how he made the list.









6 Seconds of Life
Tonya Fitzharris

Maura has just jumped.
Now she has precisely six seconds until she hits the water below her--just six more seconds until she is finally freed from her mundane and aimless existence. Freed of all of the regrets and disappointments that have haunted her throughout her nineteen years.



She just needs to be free.
But as she falls, the most pivotal points of her life start to replay like a movie in her head: her family falling apart, her first love, her first heartbreak, and her first betrayal. As she remembers these moments that brought her to this point, will she feel a sense of peace? Or will her death be her greatest regret?


Post your comments on the video I'm interested in what people thought or comment on a book you would refer regarding bullying.
