A Young Victim Of Bullying Commits Suicide At 20

Bullying is a serious problem that shouldn’t be ignored.

Adrien Gorget, a curious kid, a studious teenager and a bright young man who couldn’t be stopped from succeeding in his life.

He graduated with flying colors and was accepted into a top engineering college. In 2013, he began studying at the prestigious college and looked forward to a bright future.

But Adrien soon became the target of aggressive bullying, and it wasn’t just the playful hazing that takes place on most college campuses. He was being horribly victimized and when his car was vandalized, he broke the “code of silence” and reported it to the police.

From then on Adrien became very lonely. The revenge for his reporting of the crime was terrible. To escape all of this, Adrien would often go for long bike rides and in just five months he cycled over 2,700 miles.

Life kept getting tougher and his family did everything they could to support him.

Adrien was scared and desperate. Feeling completely abandoned by his fellow students and the college administrators, he could think of only one way out. At the age of 20, Adrien committed suicide.

His farewell letter clearly stated that he felt that the school was responsible for the tragedy. This is the deeply moving tribute video created by Adrien’s family:
