I have a similar story to billy's when i was in school i was constantly teased tormented bullied and was phisically assualted by others because i was open about being a lesbian. I understand why he would take his own life because i have tried several times throughout my 21 years. I eventually dropped out of school because it got so bad. When i left scholl things did get better. Except for in my freshman year of college my car was vandalized by anti-gay students. All four tires on my truck were slashed and they wrote on my car "die dyke" and burn in hell dyke" when i told the dean he was at a loss of words. The college is still investigating the hate crime that was commited against me. The college also paid for my truck to be repaired and repainted. Still today that haunts me. It is truely a struggle for teens and young adults who are gay in society to day as well as adults who are gay. At my college we have a GLBTQ club on campus and there is a no tolerance act for any type of bulling on campus. This semester i am the President of the GLBTQ club and i am trying to have an event to educate people on the harmful effects of bulling against anyone because i have lost alot of friends to suicide because they are gay or just being bullied. When i heard about this young man killing himself because of other students tormenting him it hit home and i broke down in tears because i completely understand. For these students who tormented him to the point that bhe couldnt take it anymore and decided to kill himself is an outrage. I agree that these students should be held responsible for his suicide. People need to be made aware of the actions that they take and how severly they can affect the individual that has to deal with what they are doing to him/her. I just hope that billy is in peace where ever he is now. And I hope his family will be okay and i send them my condolences.
