“On Oct. 1, 600 people crammed the First Baptist Church in Tehachapi to remember Seth Walsh, a 13-year-old who liked Pokémon, dance music and reading the Bible—and who had acknowledged to understanding family members and friends that he liked other boys” (Cloud). Seth Walsh was a young boy who was bullied relentlessly starting in the fourth grade. The bullying was so bad that he resorted to suicide on September 19, 2010 (Cloud). Bullying is such a huge problem in our society. Children as young as Seth Walsh are committing suicide every day because bullying is so bad that they feel like there is no other way out.

Bullying is a growing problem in American schools; an increase in bullying over a period of time can lead to suicide or negative impacts on health. Although some believe that students should not be formally charged for bullying, they should be because that is a cruel act and could lead to negative things.
