14 year old cancer survivor finds out that cyberbully is her best friend

The headline:  Justine Williams, 14-Year-Old Cancer Survivor, Finds Out Cyberbully Is Best Friend

The link:  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/04/20/justine-williams-bullying_n_851723.html

The summary:  A 14 year old Boston area middle schooler who has been a cancer survivor since the age of 10 found out that the girl who was cyberbullying her with threatening texts was her best friend.

The reaction:  I’m not sure where to even start with this.  Good for this girl battling against and winning the fight with cancer AND for speaking out against bullying.  Her life experiences have clearly made her wise beyond her years already.

As far as what’s going on in the head of her “best friend” I have no idea.  The obvious first…this girl was never her best friend or even a friend period for that matter.  So many young people hide behind internet anonymity and think they can do pretty much anything only to find that it isn’t the case.  This bully got off VERY lucky in my opinion with only community service and counseling.  I’d be ready to drop the hammer on this girl.
