Her er et innlegg jeg skrev en gang i august. Selv om det viste seg at han ikke var et slags »mobbeoffer», ihvertfall ikke i stor grad, finnes det maaaange, mange der ute som er det. Jeg syntes videoen hadde et positivt utfall for ensomme sjeler i verden som blir mobbet. Måten vi responderte på videoen og viste at offerene ikke er alene. Kanskje du ikke har hørt om videoen? I hvertfall, her har du historien:
De siste dagen har videoen om mobbe-offeret Jonah Mowry vært over hele facebook. Den gjorde sterkt inntrykk på meg og mange andre. Til og med stjerner som Lady Gaga har tweetet om videoen hans som ble lagt ut i begynnelsen av august:
For noen dager siden lastet han opp en ny video, hvor han forteller at han har venner, som nå er blitt fjernet av ham.
Videoen fikk så mye negativ oppmerksomhet, fordi folk trodde han løy om å ha blitt mobbet. Derfor valgte han å slette videoen fra den orginale youtube brukeren hvor han lastet opp den første videoen »what’s going on». En annen bruker hadde allerede savet videoen og la den ut igjen. Men det folk IKKE har fått med seg, er meldingen ha la igjen:
To all my friends and supporters,
I made this video 4 months ago just before school was about to start. I was 13. It was a very emotionally dark time in my life. I made the video at 4:00am in the morning; I hadn’t been sleeping at night for a long time, too many things going on in my head. I was dreading going back to school and I had not come out to my family yet. Only my closest friends knew. I didn’t know how to say what I needed to say. All I could think about were all the bad things that had been happening at school last year, every year for that matter. I just couldn’t bare to go through that anymore. I was done being fake happy, pretending hateful words didn’t hurt, done hiding it from my family.
So this video was made for my friends that had moved on to High School who were worried for me, to say to them that I was going to take a stand, and to the haters at my middle school that I’m not going anywhere. I am who I am. I posted the video here and told people were to find it. That was it.
My friends were moved by the video and thought I did something important. I was encouraged to upload it to my Facebook page so more people could see it. Maybe it could help someone else going through the same thing. So I linked it Dec. 1st. My Parents saw it for the first time Dec, 2nd.
Then….. all this happened.
I never expected in a million years that it would have such a wonderful impact on so many people. I am truly humbled and truly thankful for all the love, encouragement and support from people all over the world. It’s been incredibly overwhelming. I don’t know what to say. Thank you so, so much!
Lastly, yes you have seen me happy in a couple short videos replies I posted; I would think that would be a good thing , and yes I do have friends, my High School friends, and I have made friends because when I came out they realized that they had hurt me and that they fealt sorry. The video is real, and true.
In the last few months everything eventually came out in the open, I felt a huge weight off my shoulders; I’m happy, I’m excepted for who I am, I’m more confident and feel stronger every day.
Thank you all, Love and peace to all who are hurting.
Videoen har hjulpet han til å få flere venner og få dem til å forstå hvordan ha følte det. Jeg har ingen negative tanker om han i det hele tatt. Bare glad for at han har det bra nå! 🙂 ..
