Group Makes Tribute Video To Bullied Teen
Bullying is such a cowardly action. It’s good to see young people doing something positive with their talent.
According to Staten Island Advanced:
Nearly one year after Tottenville High School Student Felicia Garcia jumped in front of a Staten Island Railway train as a result of being bullied, the spotlight is on a Boston, hip hop group’s release of “Felicia,” a song meant to bring attention to the plight of bullying.
Since Ms.Garcia’s death at the Huguenot train station on Oct. 24, 2012, she has become a national symbol for what can happen as a result of bullying.
In light of October being National Bullying Prevention month, hip hop group, “Fame or Juliet,” wants to bring attention to Felicia’s story.
“We wanted to bring Felicia Garcia’s story to life,” said Jeremias Jimenez, who along with Jason Nambouh and Caleb Michel make up Fame or Juliet, a fledgling group quickly gaining popularity in Massachusetts.
Group members learned of Ms. Garcia’s death via news reports, and were inspired to write a song about her in hopes of preventing other teenagers from taking their own lives as a result of bullying by peers.
