Cyber bullying

    Cyber bullying seems to be such a growing problem. According to a recent newspaper article at least five teen suicides in the past year in Ireland have been attributed to online bullying. This video - less than two minutes - is from a bunch of teens on a film course I was working on in County Meath. They decided on the topic and they shot the whole thing themselves. I think it could really do a lot to help raise awareness of the topic.
    We talked about bullying and one thing that struck me was that they would only tell someone if they thought that person wouldn't tell anyone. There seems to be a stigma to being a victim of bullying aside from the horror of the bullying itself.
