Noticed dA started showing their purple... late. But that's okay, as long as they're actually taking this stuff into consideration. Besides, I was late with my picture too, so I shouldn't be complaining. Dx
Anyway, drew this to show my support for Spirit Day. In most instances, I've always perceived suicide as an awful thing, and when it's caused by something as awful as bullying, that's even worse. What's even worse? The fact that most kids DO go to guardians/adults/authority figures for help, and they're either brushed aside or made to feel as though it's their own faults.
My heart goes out to all those affected by this bullying and any bullying at all, whether it be bully victims, suicide victims, or their families. No one should ever have to go through that. Ever.
And while it may seem random, the reason I picked Sean for this was because he's a kid who went to a large middle/high school, and this sort of thing tended to happen. He attended the funerals of many students who died, some thanks to suicide due to bullying... It's not surprising he grew up to be the pessimist he is.
