HENDERSON, N.C. — A 16-year-old girl posted a heartbreaking question to Facebook shortly before authorities say she took her own life on Dec. 20, WLOS reports.

Now, her family is asking why she would have posted such a thing.

“Would anyone cry?” Amber Cornwell posted to her page the night she died.

Cornwell was laid to rest on the day after Christmas. Friends and family say they were indeed crying, and they will miss the girl who served as a light to many.

“I’ve been crying for days now,” Sierra Crochet told WLOS News.

Cornwell was a honor-roll student, a tennis player, dancer and a member of the All County Chorus.

Her family and friends believe it was bullying that drove her to take her own life.

“They were just calling her names,” Crochet told WLOS News. “And called her names and said she had not future and had nothing going for her.”

    One thing they need to look at here is was this poor young girl on medication? Doctors love to hand out pills and most anti-depressants should not be given to anyone under about 25 without more or less constant monitoring. Ritalin is another overused medication that can cause violent breaks with reality. Horribly sad in any case, my heart goes out to the family and friends.

        Because that’s usually the case? Bullied kids were nice kids usually not cared for amongst other kids. Why else would she have killed herself? Not everyone gives a crap until you’re dead.

    NOTHING AND NOBODY is worth taking your own life. Chances are that the kids who bully others will be working the drive-thru line at Taco Bell while you’ll be a successful human at whatever you do in life. This kids who bully are low lifes. Trust me. I’m 37 and no one is worth your own life.

    We must educate our youth to stop taking their own lives because of bullying and teach them how to take the lives of their bullies instead!

    Why is this story so hyped as the runaways from Chicago where a man given his life and
    the mental abuse. As runaways from this rich princess to a poor one whom never gets the media happens every day of the year. So this tennis player with rich pockets will have the country by there tears but most likely she shacked up with someone out of the spotlight.
