I have been watching the horrifying news of the recent suicides of teenage girls who had been sexually assaulted then their assaults shared via social networking. I can't imagine the pain and humiliation those children endured. I don't know how someone copes or learns to live with something so horrifying.

I saw a headline about something similar.  I don' t know if it is the same story or not but it must be extremely difficult.  On one hand it must be quite painful to have something like become so public but on another it is definite proof that a crime has happened.  

  It breaks my heart that someone feels they would need to kill themselves as a result.

I have thought about the proof thing Zoe since you mentioned it. I don't know if that would be comforting or not for me. Those poor girls. I hope everyone who shared pics and vidoes is prosecuted too.
