On Sunay, Jamey Rodemeyer committed suicide. He was only 14 years old. When will people realize that bullying has to stop? That school yard taunts and bullying are NOT the same thing? There has to be safety in our schools for our children. There has to be tolerance taught at home.

Regardless of gender, religion, sexual orientation, or social class, we are all still human beings. We have feelings. We have dreams. We have fears.

As a parent, this story strikes very close to home for me. I cannot imagine the pain that Jamey's parents are enduring. My heart goes out to them.
