That's not even counting suicides like the one that happened in our high school while I went there. There was a lot of speculation that a student in the grade below me might
be gay, and I know some other students made a video where he was made fun of. Nobody ever revealed the details of the video, but I heard it made fun of him for being gay and ended with him hanging himself - which he ended up doing. It was a really hard time for me as well, knowing him and having played soccer with him... as well as knowing that he may have done it out of embarrassment for being gay, which I already knew at the time I probably was as well.
The hardest part for me to accept was that although his wake/funeral had THOUSANDS who attended, our school never did anything to honor his memory. They basically pretended like nothing happened, it was never in the local news, and the fact that bullying played a major part was never known by many - the teacher who was in charge of our yearbook wouldn't even allow a page dedicated to him. It makes me wonder how often this happens, where the community thinks it would be best to keep everything quiet instead of facing their issues. It's very very sad, and I'm glad for my friend and other like him that these issues are finally gaining nationwide attention
