It is much easier to feel brave behind a computer. But do we forget that words hurt? Here are some examples of the kind of tweets Charlotte Dawson received:
As I watch my daughter grow up in this world of technology, I worry that one day someone might text her mean things or email her mean things or Facebook her mean things. What tools do we need to deal with this kind of stuff? Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me.
You can watch a clip here of Charlotte confronting some of her cyber bullies last year.
They're called trolls because they live out of sight and make you feel bad.
In the end, Charlotte is responsible for taking her own life but maybe we all need to be a little kinder to each other because some people find it hard in this big, bad world.

There's also some truth to the good old saying, "If you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all."
