Witches are still living in Massachusetts.
When will this nonsense stop. Where are the parents of these girls? Albeit that they are part of the problem, telling them how special and wonderful they are. They will probably blame the child…”CHILD”. When a teenager is growing up they go through changes and are impressionable and vulnerable. Some may go through the maturing transition easier some have problems, it is life. With this beautiful young angel being from another country trying to adjust here was probably even more difficult.
It seems that when a beautiful and more down to earth person comes along they are intimidated and feel the need to get rid of the competition.
And of course we will have the “Experts” say suicide is a choice and she took her own life. When an adult takes his or her life it is a sad day, but when a child takes his or her life it is tragic.
These spineless administrators will hide behind the “Law”. None would take a stand but now they will stand to save their jobs. I assume this angel had no real friends and no boyfriend to stand by her side.
These witches have the power to do this because they are allowed to. The students of this school need to take the power back and not allow these girls to keep doing this.
Stop being afraid they are only as powerful as you allow them to be. Take your school back.

Phoebe Prince

They saw your beauty and were overcome.
But to your angelic smile they would not succumb.
As you tried to walk along with them.
They could not see the beauty of the Cherubim.

And now as those that loved you so, share a tear.
You now walk along with those that have no fear.
The Love the memories and the pain.
They seem alone here to stand the rain.

But the rain is not meant to ruin the day.
And soon they will see all things his way.
The tears of Angels with this the day they rinse.
For today they welcome our Phoebe Prince.

May GODBLESS all those who will miss her and Forgive those who did this..

When will this end. It's sad that some teenage girls think they are so much better than anyone else. From looking at the picture of this beautiful young women they were very jealous and afraid she might attract more boys than them. I'm very upset when I heard about this. My daughter was bullied in school, but her outcome was not as tragic. She got into drugs to help dull the pain and was expelled from school. I hope legal action is taken against these girls and they pay the price for their actions, eventho they did not take part in this tragic ending of this girls life. The emotional abuse is just as damaging. Mr DA please do not let this go, these girls MUST suffer the consequences for their actions.

Society is responsible for programming children to take bullies seriously. If this programming didn't take place they wouldn't be able to get the public to go along with all the bs the system gets away with.

If you want to know who killed her besides herself look at Wall Street. Those are the men who benefit from the system as it is, a system that in the very fibers of our educational system teaches people to regard themselves as commodities. Phoebe made an economic decision. She received signals that she was not valued, and she took herself out of the market.

The system focuses people on money, power, social status. We should teach our children to enjoy experiencing life for its own sake.

Children display a natural curiosity for learning and for doing and creating, until we turn it into work and by the time they are adults they have learned to hate it and to objectify specific things as "fun" and to judge themselves as others judge them.

I would know even more today if I had never went to school, even by academic standards. I was learning just fine before the system tried to take control of it.

Want your child to be strong? Want your child to love life? Teach your child to value above everything else the experience of life itself and to guard their freedom to live it. Nothing else matters.
