    people who were bullied themselves.  I endured some very mild bullying around 4th to 5th grade, and it certainly made me very unlikely to ever bully anyone.  In high school I really tried to make contact with the 'outs' to try to overcome the harm done by others.  Sometimes they were resentful, but sometimes they were appreciative and we became good friends.
    So if we can't stop bullying, at least we can all try to befriend the victims and hope to avoid more tragedies like this one.
