Thank you. Thank you very much...... And, since the story mentioned "copyright", and of course the record label copyright police who somehow got involved and things had to be put back so we, humans and citizens, could share in this work. And, to the those senators who seems to be taking a corporate money position with the Protect IP, Its not Property! Its culture. Copyright is (supposed to be) limited in time and limited in effect. Culture is this video. Culture is people reaching out to other people. Its art for humanity sake. And, its free advertising for the stuff you can also buy. WE MUST NOT make being human and sharing non commercial "derivative works" a crime. Being human and expressing feelings and using some other human being's music or video clip as a meaningful background must not be any more criminal then breathing in and out. AND, wholesale (as in 1000s, not 17) stealing and selling for money of copyrighted works can also be a crime. Fix the protect IP bill as citizens, not as paid (sorry, campaign contribution receiving) Hollywood shills.

than breathing ; if only it where that easy in the modern earth age. great story. and who responded first ?. rock ? band, with no selfish incentive?. cheer up people!. "OUR" proud and glorious political stars will be all over any stories that may have any affinity to this one soon. 'ya' think humanity might influence them then?. " VOTE EARLY AND KEEP YOUR OPTIONS OPEN!.". 'then vote again!'.

Good for you, Chloe! You're a role model for children and adults alike! It seems you have a wonderful personality and I hope you continue to share it with the world:)

I don't have a daughter; but if I did, I'd hope she'd be as strong, kind, brave, and beautiful as Chloe. If only everyone being bullied had Chloe's inner strength! Remember, bullies bully because they feel so bad about themselves that they need to tear other people down so that they can feel better about themselves.

Hey Chloe; I am an alumni from Roosevelt (Junior High School, back then), and I too was bullied (for my orientation). I hope you know that there's a LOT MORE people pulling for you than there are bullies. Bullies are insecure, immature, and have mob mentality. You are way above that. The old saying: "What Goes Around, Comes Around" in so true. We hope everything turns out just the way you want it to.

Funny how some use this uplifting AMAZING story to post about their politics or negativity. This is an amazing story about and amazing girl, not about politics or a band, the band was mentioned sure but thats not what this is about, keep it positive and keep your chin up Chloe

Chloe, you seem very strong. Bullies are peopel who have nothing better to do with their time and need something that makes them feel better. I personally think its awesome you have the option to wear different hairstyles everyday if you choose!!! Have fun with it, get some glamour, wacky or elegant or whatever your nature is wigs and make it fun, bring out you! I was bullied some in school and I never realized it but I learned through time there were people who had my back, they just didnt feel the need to receive praise. In the end, theres more people who care than you will ever know. Take care, hugs and luvs!
