Cyber Bullying is Disgusting

Online bullying or cyber bullying is a form of harassment and shouldn't be tolerated anywhere. Whether its on social media sites or apps for a phone or tablet is disrespectful and hurtful. Not just to the intended target but to everyone involved. By sending these harmful messages a person can severely hurt someone emotionally or physically. I think that it's very sneaky and cowardly to hide behind a screen and send out messages to cause harm.

My little sister was involved in a hit-and-run and was immensely injured. Her leg was broken and had gone through numerous amounts of surgeries. She posts pictures of her healing development to show friends and family that her health is slowly but surely increasing over time. For someone to make harsh comments on her pictures and playing them off as “no big deal” is absolutely horrendous. My family and I have been through a lot this year and we don't need more people trying to bring us down.

But it's not just my family that this is happening to. People all over the world are involved in cyber bullying everyday. People need to realize that things said online stay there forever. You cannot just delete something and have every single person forget about it.
