Laura Rhodes was a beautiful, caring and sensitive 13 year old girl
who live in Cimla Neath - South Wales.
But Laura had a serious problem that sent her into a deep depression
she was incessantly bullied at the school that she attended.
Laura was over weight and everyday she was subjected to a barrage
of cruel comments about her weight and consistently subjected
to profane name calling and viscous untrue rumors.
Some students would intentionally trip her, throw things at her, knock her books
out of her hands, hit her and kick her as she walked down hallways.
Laura did not know how to cope with her pain so she was caught in a cycle
of over eating to compensate and was eventually a size 24 at 13.
The bullying totally ended her self confidence, in her dairy
she wrote: that she was fat, ugly and worthless
and that she hated every moment of every day.
Laura also went online to try and find some friends to help her
cope with her problems and one day met a 14 year old girl
from Longbridge Birmingham England named Rebecca.
Laura and Rebecca became good friends and emailed and text
messaged each other every day, they visited each other
every weekend and even traveled together on a trip to Greece.
But Rebecca was also deeply suffering from depression
and the two young girls formed a suicide pact.
On September 6th 2004. Laura and Rebecca both took
a large overdose of medication, Rebecca survived but sadly
Laura lost her life.
Laura was 13.
