Anything can easily be backspaced, but once sent, it can’t be deleted.

DoSomething.org reports that “81% of young people think bullying online is easier to get away with than bullying in person.”

“My advice to people who have been cyberbullied is to stick to your grind and don’t worry about what others have to say. Your education is more important,” said UHS Senior Kiara Powell.

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people with approximately 4,400 deaths every year.”

“I feel as though cyberbullying is a bunch of shenanigans. I don’t know why people do it because bullying someone on the internet is not right.” said UHS Senior Yolanda Daniels.

An opinion shouldn’t stop your life in any way because no one deserves to have that much power over someone. We each need to consider the consequences of our words, which starts with thinking twice about the messages and comments we send.

“People need to stand up to bullies and realize that the things they say over a computer screen they won’t say to your face in person,” said UHS Senior Sadelle Carey.

It’s sad that people struggle so hard to live out the person they truly are. There is a side to every person that you don’t know so let’s not add to the warfare that’s going on inside their hearts.

This issue of cyberbullying continues to grow throughout society, but one can only help that we can throw this issue down the drain, and everyone can be genuinely happy without judgement in their life. It’s all in our words!
