Found hanged: The bullied 11-year-old boy who even the bus driver called names

When Ben Vodden told his mother he was being bullied on the school bus, she advised him to sit next to the driver.

Yet rather than look after him, the driver joined in the taunts and called the 11-year-old names, it has been claimed.

Ben finally was found hanged after enduring months of bullying by pupils on the bus, an inquest heard. 

The boy nicknamed Giggles by his family because of his "fun-loving and enthusiastic" nature was found with shoelaces around his neck and tied to his bunk bed.

AUSTIN MURPHY

Austin was sweet, generous, kind and intelligent.  He wanted to be himself and just...play.  He was a friend to those who needed one.  He impacted so many lives with his effervescent spirit.  He gave with his heart without expecting anything in return, other than fairness.

...Unfortunately, the kids with the low self esteem slowly grated away Austin's healthy self esteem until he must have thought, if he couldn't be himself, then why be at all.  When did having a healthy self esteem and just wanting to be yourself, become so unpopular?  On March 16, 2007, Austin completed suicide.                ...So I suggest to you; 

Everyday, 
Honor your spirit 
And take time 
To just... Play.

DESIRE' DREYER
..
...Desire' Dreyer attended Glen Este High School in Amelia, Ohio.  She was a varsity cheerleader, had a personality that we all only wish we could possess, had a smile that would take your breath away, had a heart of gold and had more friends than any of us will ever have in this lifetime.  But on a cold wintery day, January 18, 2006 she took her own life, the day I died inside. 

When we moved to Amelia Ohio four years ago, my daughter had a few issues with the move, but she seemed to have adjusted when she started making new friends, made the cheerleading squad and met a young man, the boyfriend of her dreams. 

But there were a few girls that just could not leave well enough alone...

"I Wish I Could Reverse Time"
>
...Julian always had problems in school.  He was often bullied, and we would always address it to the school, but we often heard 'boys will be boys'.  Julian could of been considered a 'loner'.  He always said he had no friends and complained about getting bullied in school. We even put him in a private school at one time to try to make things better for him, but it never was.
