This song needs to be listened to, and its words heeded:

&fe ature=player_embedded

I don't mean to trivialize a death - rather, music has always been a part of human celebration and observances of death - this is the song that immediately came to my mind when the news of this suicide due to bullying crossed my page. A hymn with a beat, if you will. Think of this as not a dance song, but as a call to social evolution...

for *ucks sake, for every 1 of us that dies, 9 ameriKKKan christians should be sacrificed.

pathetic ameriKKKa. this country endorses the anti-gay climate and culture that leads to glbt children taking their own lives.

ameriKKKa should be ashamed of itself and held accountable for the anti-gay environment it has created, but none of that will happen. the united states of ameriKKKa hates glbt people, period.

I'm not sure that kids should come out at that age. It isn't safe for them.
Sad.

People need to watch the movie "Prayers for Bobby".......it's a true story and if Bobby's death helped his mother come to terms with her HOMOPHOBIA, maybe it can help others!!!

Well, here I am with another message from the universe and as usual, the message was delivered with a punch.

My life currently is full of stress and strife. Enough to make me put my head in my hands and rock back and forth. But how little are my troubles in this new light?!

When I woke up this morning, I was able to kiss my child and send her off to school. I was able to see my wife, give her a hug, and say good morning, and even argue with her a bit.

The family of this young man did not have the same pleasures. I can imagine that the only thing they woke up to,(if they even slept) was more tears, emptiness and questions that may never be answered. Stop and think for a moment about that special someone in your life and how you would think you would feel if they were suddenly taken away from you because someone else couldn't allow your loved one to be different in anyway!!!!

REMEMBER, PLEASE, BEFORE YOU ATTACK SOMEONE, BELITTLE THEM OR HARM THEM IN ANY WAY, REMEMBER THAT THEY ARE SOMEONES MOTHER, FATHER, DAUGHTER, SON,AUNT, UNCLE......SOMEONE WILL REMAIN TO PAY THE PRICE FOR YOUR HATRED!

I agree with this young man I if the family has no objections, I will carry on his message of "BE BUDDIES-NOT BULLIES!"

In "Prayers for Bobby", the mother not only learned how to accept her sons's sexuality (although it be too late), she learned how telling others about her story, her pain, her loss can help to stop the hatred so other families do not have to suffer a similar loss.

And at what age would it be safer? Adult gay and lesbians are being beaten to death, stabbed or shot. Those who do manage to ignore the stupid people still have to tolerate the daily bigotry and bullying from employers, co-workers and neighbors.

Tolerance is not the responsibility of any one individual but society as a whole. Once everyone learns that they do not have the right to tell someone else how to walk, talk, dress and love, bigotry and hared will no longer be the norm.!

Straight people and gays have different point of views. I agreed no one should tell others how to live their live however gays are not innocent.That just flew right over your head didn't it. You'll catch that one day.

It depends on where they are in terms of blue state or progressive school, how big and secure a peer support group they have, whether they're likely to have supportive parents.

They see flourishing glbt online communities and must feel that will automatically extend to their brick and mortar schools. Not necessarily so.

But this gets into teenagers being able to weigh information and arrive at am accurate judgment of their situation.

Unfortunately, the target market for this song is the same as for Pink Floyd's WE DON'T NEED NO EDUCATION.
