    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.

    @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.
