VIDEO: Vigils Held Worldwide For Victims of Bullying
From coast to coast on Friday, candles will be lit and moments of silence observed to remember Amanda Todd, and all victims of bullying.
Todd is the 15-year old B.C. girl that took her own life earlier this month after enduring years of bullying.
The Toronto District School Board marked the day by having all 40-thousand staff members and 250-thousand students pause for one minute of silence in remembrance of bullying victims. They're also asked schools across the province to join them in that effort.
A large vigil is planned for Todd in Surrey, B.C. but Edmonton, Winnipeg and Halifax are just some of the other cities which will also hold their own. This is making waves internationally as well, with vigils being held in Florida, California, Spain and India.
