Eric was my best friend. We were never apart. When we got into middle school Eric was being made fun of because of the way he talked because he could not pronounce some words right. It started to go past that about how he looked and what he did. It got so bad that it went to me and I was being made fun of for being his friend. I didn’t have a problem with it but I did have a problem with them making fun of Eric.
One day I was out of school for two weeks for a family problem and while I was out I got a call from Eric’s mom crying saying that Eric took his own life because of the bullying from those two weeks. It broke my heart to think that my bestfriend took his own life because kids in school called him names and made fun of him. Till this day I stand up for the kids being bullied and I won’t stop. I don’t want anyone else to go threw what I went threw. STOP BULLYING!
