Two points: One is I am absolutely appauled by the coments and hate even some comments said that he and other gays should kill themselves. Two, the fundamentalist, Christian's who believe that homosexuality is a sin and actively try to legistate or stop such laws and bills make me so angry because most of it come from lack of the facts and by their own opinion. For Christian teens this makes it so much worse. Yet, another teen tragically lost an enviornment that tolerates and promotes hate. If you need help: The Trevor Project is a great organization. You can find it on the Web, or you can call its hotline at 1-866-488-7386. or go the http://www.itgetsbetterproject.org/ for additonal resources and encouragement.
I just found out that my friends niece attempted suicide because she was being bullied and she isn't different than most of her peers. Thank God that she wasn't successful and her family and her are getting help. Internet social networks add so much to the type of bullying that I went through years ago. When are the politicians and right-winged fundamentalist Christians going to get it. I thought that politicians were supposed to represent us and not their party's consensous. Also, my understanding of being a Christian is that love and acceptance comes first.
Note: Balloons used were biodegradable.
When it comes to the tragic suicides - like that of Jamey Rodemeyer - that our community continues to face, it's hard to find the words. So, I made this video."
