Stop Cyberbullying!

 Source: Cyberbullying
With the advancement of technology, with just one click of a mouse, we could easily share anything and everything of what is happening around the world.

Christopher Lao. Robert Blair Carabuena. John Paul Encinas. It all rings a bell right?

These people had their 15 minute of fame or should I say shame due to their infamous behavior.
They claimed to be victims of cyberbullying. Their names and actions trended in all social networks not just in the Philippines but worldwide.

And now, we have an addition to the group. Paula Jamie Salvosa or popularly known as Amalayer.

When I saw the video, instantly I knew both sides were at fault.
It just so happened that Paula's action was way too tacky. Napa English pa talaga sa sobrang galit. 
I believe that Paula was already having a bad day and then the lady guard did or said something to provoked her to act that way. But of course, that does not give her a right to pour out her anger to the lady guard.
I am not in any way defending her attitude or action towards the lady guard.
What I am trying to say is that we all have bad moments.
As they say, one bad moment does not define our character.

This is just some sort of a reminder to everyone that there will always be two sides to every story.
We should not judge somebody when in fact, we do not even know the whole story.
In my opinion, the incident was just blown out of proportion and personally, there's no way that I would upload a video nor hit share button on Facebook to make fun of somebody.
Internet users should always adhere to ethical conduct. And besides there are other ways to make our time useful.

What would you do and how would you feel if this happened to you? Think about it guys.
