WATCH: Bullied Girl Takes Plight to YouTube

Alye Pollack, an eighth-grader at Bedford Middle School in Westport, Connecticut, posted a powerful video using nothing but a video camera and homemade signs to describe the torment suffered at school. In the video, the 13-year-old doesn't speak but instead holds up signs expressing her plight: "I am bullied. Not a day has gone by without one of these words -- 'bitch,' 'whore,' 'fat, 'lesbo,' 'slut,' 'freak,' ugly,' 'weird,' fag," the signs read. "I don't cut but I'm close...I'm in therapy/guidance more than my classes....Think before you say things. It might save lives." Last Friday, the Bedford's principal sent an email to parents on saying the school was investigating a case of cyber bullying.
