Discrimination and bullying exacts another consequence
When will authorities, and the populace in general, take a stand to eradicate discrimination, of whatever type, and bullying? Another sad situation and tragic outcome......
"Today is the funeral for Kenneth James Weishuhn, a 14-year-old high school freshman in Iowa who killed himself after coming out as gay and subsequently facing a storm of brutal bullying, death threats and hateful Facebook and cell phone messages. Family, friends, his town mourn a "kind and respectful," and impossibly young, kid. If you can stand it, see the heartbreaking "When I Get Married" page he assembled for a dreamy future he will never have. This has to stop. Words matter. Remember it, and teach your kids."
