On Sunday, Nov. 18 the Amanda Todd family will host a celebration of life event in memory of their beloved Canadian teen, who was basically bullied to death.
And the public is invited to attend. RSVP here.
Todd, 15, was from Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, where she endured more than two years of victimization from a cyber stalker who harassed and bullied her until she committed suicide in October of 2012.
And that horrible man has not yet had to pay for his crimes against her.
Even after death, the youth's Facebook page was attacked by mean-spirited people bent on lashing out at her and her family unkindly. And the fact that the family was subjected to the same terrible behavior following Amanda's death, at least temporarily, that their tormented loved one had to endure while she was alive just boggles the mind.
This weekend the young teen will finally have her hour on the stage of life in a positive way, however, as her celebration of life service will is held at the Red Robinson Show Theatre in B.C. at 1:30 p.m. PT.
Originally Todd's mother planned her memorial service to be held on Nov. 17 at the Citadel Middle School, but she expressed reservations about whether there would be enough seating capacity for those who wanted to attend, as the deceased teen had 20 million hits on the YouTube video she made prior to her death.
The state of the art facility at the Red Robinson Show Theatre eliminates that concern, and on Sunday the star gracing the 1,000 seat auditorium will be the image of Amanda Michelle Todd. Her family will seek to remember the good times and the personality and character of the one they love on Sunday, rather than focus on what drove her to take her own lifeÂ—or question why her victimizer remains free.
Those who are unable to attend the Amanda Michelle Todd celebration of life event themselves are encouraged to either leave the family a message of support at the Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services website page for Amanda or, thanks to CBC News, to watch it online.
And no disrespectful, bullying, harassing or mean-spirited acts or behavior will be tolerated in the theatreÂ—or online. So keep it respectful, please.
