Bullying was the number one reason why, we pulled Saenz out of public school. Not only by students but, teachers held blame as well. For an adult to not take a complaint of bullying as true ---- is in fact; (indirect) BULLYING.
I know I can not tolerate, or look away, and will step up if I feel someone is bullying or causing another harm. Four suicides is a horrible tragedy especially over preceptions of sexual preferences. Those four young men did not know of themselves yet; and to be bullyied until they wanted to die just makes me cry. We need to teach our children empathy for each other especially during those formative -- trying years of young adulthood.
Please lets teach our children to respect others right to the pursuit of a happy life no matter their: color, appearance, social background, sexual orientation, religion, dress and culture.
The 'children' / adults that had a hand in the deaths of four other human beings will have to carry their crimes against another's humanity on their souls for the rest of their lives and may face jail time. WE ALL WILL CARRY THEIR BURDEN; because we did not 'SEE' the victims.
