I think you all should read this.....this is such a sad story about a girl who died because she was different
This is a true story I did not make all this up

About 6 years ago in August 2007 Bacup,England a young couple named Sophie Lancaster and her boyfriend Robert Matlby were attacked by group of prejudice and cruel teenagers.
Sophie and Robert were brutally beaten on the head,Sophie tried to protect her boyfriend until the group stomped on her head and body and knocked her and Robert into a coma.
Robert and Sophie were transported to the hospital with severe head injuries,luckily for Robert he was able to wake up from his coma and made a recovery.
However....Sophie unfortunately did not make it,on August 24th 2007 the doctors determined that she was not going to wake up from her coma,in the end her family agreed to turn her life support off.
Sophie was only 20 years old,she had died so young all because of the way her and her boyfriend looked.

Sophie and Robert were attacked for no reason at all but because they were Goths

Two of the teens from the mob that attacked Sophie and Robert were arrested and sentenced to prison for murder


It breaks my heart to hear such a tragic story about a young couple getting fatally injured just because of how they looked,its just sickening to know how cruel someone can be to think it's okay to hurt someone because they look different.
This crime was never forgotten,Sophie was always remembered as the girl who died because of her appearance.

Everyone is different in their own way,it is not wrong to be different,you have the right to be who you want,nobody can ever decide on what you are.

I can't believe how people would act so violently towards an individual just for the way they dress :( Sophie didn't do anything wrong to these people, and yet her life was taken away by these cruel pricks.

R.I.P. Sophie :heart:

I found the image when I just googled her when pics came up of her it was so sad how much fatal damage was put into her :(
Her boyfriend was able to recover but I think the damage caused brain damage to him
