Things that inspire me to write #69: Amanda Todd



It takes a lot of courage to admit there is something wrong—even more to share that pain with others. Amanda did. Faced with increasing cyber assaults, insults and bullying Amanda Todd created a video about her experience which garnered over 20 million hits and has since spurred an entire movement raising awareness about teen bullying.

Yesterday marked Amanda’s 16th birthday, and though she is no longer around to celebrate it, her message is.

So thank you Amanda Todd, you inspire me.
