13 Reasons Why was written by Jay Asher in 2007. This book was about a girl, bullied throughout her freshman and sophomore years of high school, whose rape and weak support system led to suicide. This book, like most, became televised and has grown in popularity over these recent months. This TV show was not steamed just for the sole purpose of entertainment, but for awareness. Awareness of how we are so unaware. Awareness of how our actions and words impact a person. Awareness of what the word “no” means.

13 Reasons Why  is so real at multiple times that it becomes hard to watch, but that was the point. Just because it was hard to watch doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be shown. If you watched the show, How did you get through it? Did you binge watch it like Tony? Or did you have to watch it piece by piece like Clay?  We can’t censor the topics of bullying and rape because it’s “hard to watch” or “uncomfortable”. Imagine what the person experiencing these things in real life feel. We, as a school and community, need to make students aware of these awful things that do happen. Not only do we need to make more students aware, but we have to break the stigma surrounding bullying and rape.

We must become more open to listening and less eager to judging. We don’t know what is happening in our peers life and how our actions and words can impact them so crucially.  Before you act or speak, take a moment and make sure what you say or do has a good intent. We need to try to be a nicer generation. Speaking with kind words, lending a hand when possible, and most importantly, protecting each other when needed.
