This poem which I’ve written for today ‘ Fourteen springs ‘ is written for Maartje.
I heard from my dear friend Diny this very sad story about this young girl, why she took her own life. We’ve had many sad examples in the past, which I’ve written about before. But this still isn’t enough to make it stop. Bully and be bullied. In school they don’t have the right methods to work through this together. Her school also fails in capturing it, and guiding Maartje through this. Children suffer in silence. I’ve also been a child whom sufferend in silence, and that’s why I want to give these children a voice. So that it’s not forgotten, but think by ourselves. How are our children doing, what are they doing, and how are they are doing at school, and on the internet?
Such a storys have to be shared, to make sure that this will never happen again.
Share this story, and talk about it, but never be silent !
