Truth Is: VIDEO


16-year-old singer/songwriter Marcella Fruehan writes: "I wrote this song to express my feelings in support of anti-bullying. As a 16 year old I see a lot going on around me; especially with bullying and the effects that it has on those who are bullied and what lengths teens will go to to "get away" from it all. I want you to know suicide is never the answer. Truth is...you are loved, you are not alone...you are never alone."

  5. NorthOftheBordeer, while that's a nice thought, it's not true.

    People do not look good based on how good they are inside.

  6. Hated it. The only reason that the kid didn't commit suicide is because the pretty girl "cares" about him. (apparently not enough to, you know, include him or anything.) How does this not reinforce the message every suicidal kid has, the message "nobody cares about me?"
    Good song and that kid is going to be a heart-breaker when he grows up, but the plot was unhelpful.

  7. it's good because it has a good message to stop bullying. Doesn't have to be perfect, it is what it is.

  8. @Lessthan -- it was the day *after* he was thinking about killing himself that he finds her note. So he got through it by himself somehow. And she got brave enough to take a stand as well.

    I think the video is less for bullied kids and more for the kids who see it going on and know it's wrong, but don't quite have the courage to stand up for the bullied. It's telling those kids that even something as simple as a note could help someone.
