Saddest Story I have heard as a parent of 2 teens- Conrad
Last year, a 12-year-old girl in Florida, Rebecca Ann Sedwick, "committed suicide after being bullied through social media by several girls for nearly a year". Now, a 12-year-old and a 14-year-old have been arrested for felony aggravated stalking that led to the death. All of it allegedly started over a boyfriend.
Last month, CBS News correspondent Michelle Miller reported that the one message that her mother, Tricia Norman, cannot forget urged Rebecca Ann to kill herself.
"'You haven't killed yourself yet,'" Norman recalled the message saying. "'Go jump off of a building.'"
According to a CNN affiliate, the 14-year-old who was arrested posted on her Facebook "Yes IK I bullied REBECCA nd she killed her self but IDGAF." (That translates to "Yes, I know I bullied Rebecca and she killed herself but I don't give a f*ck" for any Olds™ out there who can't read it.) Charming.

Something You Might Not Know About Me: I've been married to my wife Susan for over 24 years. She is a now runs her own business writing grants for non-profits in Michigan. My youngest son, Ben (19), had major brain surgery for seizures in Aug '05. He is completely recovered and is a sophomore at GVSU! My other son, Harry, is 21 wants to be a Naturalist/Vet goes to MCC.
My big life changing experience was a motorcycle accident during the Roofsit in Sept '06. It was humbling to have so many listeners praying for me during my 6 operations. I was off the air for 6 weeks and in a wheelchair for about 5-6 months. Since then I have experienced complete kidney failure and have been on dialysis for 2 years. Spring of 2010 I organized TEAM CONRAD for the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan. Our 1st Kidney Walks did over 100K-- WOW! I was blessed in Jan 2011 with a kidney transplant from listener/donor Kristin O'Leary from Grandville. I have so much to be thankful for... but especially for your thoughts & prayers.
