In Ontario, over 100 people were recently arrested in a child porn ring. While I don't know for sure if my daughter was a victim, I do know that just before her first suicide attempt, the "step-father" of her friend sent her an odd Facebook message. "Heyyyyy.." When I scrolled back through her Facebook messages looking for clues, I found a number of cryptic messages from this man including one that said , "Do you have a web cam?" and another one later saying,"I can see you." I was shocked to find out these messages had been sent to her for almost a year. Who is messaging you child online?

Free Anti Bullying Posters for HalloweenDec 5 2006, 13 year old son Steven Urry hung himself in his bedroom closet. Bullies had tormented him for months, and even set him on fire in a bathroom, then posted a video of them tormenting him on the internet. Steven's mom found him when she went to tell him to wash up for dinner. The police picked his dad up at work and took him to the hospital.
Steven had lots of friends before Junior High school. He had been a happy kid. Steven's parents, Mike and Pam Urry, had complained to the school, the school board, and even filed complaints with the police about the bullying. About a week before Steven died, he himself had given his statement to the police. The Crown Attorney refused to lay any charges, and the school board just moved the offenders to another school. Steven's parents were about to take him out of school when he died.
Each year on Halloween, the volunteer foundation formed in response to Steven's death, posts free Anti bullying posters for people to share in their workplace, download, print out and give to trick or treaters, in the hopes that the information, may help save at least one other child's life.
