Protect the Tyler Clementis from Cyber Harassment


Tyler Clementi was the college student with exceptional musical talent and hopes of more to come. This student’s life ended abruptly this week.Why??? Because of Cyber harassment.

I wrote an article earlier this week.Since that article, I have heard from several gifted in the arts who have received different levels of harassment. One poet is so emotionally distressed he can’t create.

I have heard from calloused people who have commented people should “get over it.”

Have you ever been in the shoes of an artist?? What makes them creative is their hypersensitivity to life. A leaf drops and they write about “the end.” They feel each word, each sound, each color. It’s their intensity that helps the world at large appreciate beauty. Harass them and you strangle their creativity. My poet friend wants to escape from blogdom to heal.

Yet there are those who are callous and harass who feel it is their first amendment right to say whatever cruel and bullying thing that comes off the keyboard. I’m thinking the first amendment is over rated when the Tyler Clementis (the next generation of musical beauty) are driven to death.

What say you??? Do we let those with bitter jealously continue to hang the tender hearted writers, painters, and musicians of our world? They are cracking down on cyber bullying of teens. Why can’t we extend that crack down. It should not be a legal to exude cruelty and destroy people like Tyler Clementi.
