On Saturday, September 12, 2009, Hope Witsell couldn't take it any longer and took her own life.

Have you seen the sexting photo that started Hope Witsell's hell? Was it really that bad?

What happened to Hope Witsell was tragic and sad. It wasn't so much about the photo, but more about the incessant bullying by classmates that followed when the photo spread, it put an emotional weight upon Hope Witsell that she ultimately could not bear.
Hope Witsell hanged herself in her bedroom.

There were signs at school that she may have been engaging in self-harm. She had promised a school counselor that she would tell someone if she were going to harm herself. Hope didnít tell.
We all make mistakes, more than one usually. Seems as though she had low self esteem. This is something all parents must talk to our kids about.

Witsell's case is the second sexting tragedy to occur in the US. Eighteen-year-old Jesse Logan was part of a similar story.

Kids like Hope Witsell are way too connected right now.
This wouldn't have happened some years ago.

For this newest generation who learned how to text before they learned how to do basic math, having a cell phone, a Facebook and a Twitter account means everything.

It would be considered child ****, so I doubt Google will make it easy to find.
