One bullet penetrated Malala’s head but did not enter her brain, and two of her friends were shot in the arm.

And the most serious cases of bullying effects are: nightmares, trauma, depression, anxiety, feelings of loneliness and isolation. In extreme cases, they have a higher risk of suicide. They are becoming hopeless of having their voice back and to stand up to their bullies. And becoming voiceless in this cruel world leaves you invisible to others and vulnerable to what the bully dictates. Something must be done in order for the bullies to be just normal persons instead of being a self-proclaimed superior to a society where equality must

In Gerard Jones’ essay “Violent Media is Food for Kids,” he forces the reader to decide whether the argument that there is a direct correlation between violent media and violent children is valid, or if that by denying children the freedom to experience violence through media, society is harming a very important foundation of finding one’s self. I find it similar to the Jude Priest case because two parents banded together to sue a band for allegedly putting subliminal messages in their heavy metal music that caused their sons to commit suicide. While most of the expert witness concluded that there was not enough scientific research to prove that subliminal messages can truly influence someone, nor can Vance or Belknap could really be considered
The Consequences of Betrayal “The saddest thing about betrayal is that it never comes from your enemies….it comes from friends and loved ones” (Ash Sweeny). Ash Sweeny’s quote can be considered true for many reasons.

Both of them were betrayed not by enemies but by loved ones and friends, which is where betrayal originates according to Sweeny. Julius Caesar and Skylar Neese were both stabbed to death and killed by their best friends, both of them being victims of the greatest form of betrayal and the both of them completely unsuspecting.

Humiliation, and subsequent lack of respect, diminishes the effectiveness of discipline. The lessons meant to be taught by the discipline never reach the recipient or are ultimately forgotten. Humiliation also causes a perception of failure, linked to suicide. The link is evident in the case of a thirteen-year-old girl.
