In the last few weeks it's been two suicides (that I know of) of two young boys, both age 11 who were constantly bullied at school. You can click the articles above to read their stories but basically both boys had endured constant bullying at school and taunts of being gay and even their parents had reported the incidents to teachers/school officials and nothing was done about either child's situation.
Maybe to some people it's nothing wrong with this at all and it's common for young children to end their lives but to me I find something really wrong with this picture and I believe something needs to be done about this. This really hits home with me because I have a dozen nieces and nephews all under the age of 10 and passion for kids and helping them so to see anyone ESPECIALLY a child being hurt physically or emotionally really strikes a nerve with me and these stories have left me with a sick feeling.
