Given the recent spate of high profile teen suicides due to being outed or bullied or gay-bashed, I really wanted to devote a blog to to the topic. I, myself, have been in these horrible situations, and when I was younger and struggling, I, too, felt helpless and hopeless. Dangerous thoughts went through my mind regularly. Thank God I didn't go through with it. There is, in fact, hope after high school.
When you read about these sad cases or see them on TV, it is (or should be) devastating and should make a loving human being angry and moved to do something. Even sadder is the fact that for every one event that makes the news, there are dozens more that go unreported by the press.
Thank you for your time.
