    wow i have never felt that sad in a long time. and yes had to whip the tears away. that is so powerful and need to be spread across the world so the younger gay people realize that it does get better. it is truely sad that those young people did what they did. but it goes to show that there r some real assholes out there. but just because they r differant dont let anyone tell u that u should die for being who u r. icon_sad.gif

    I needed to hear his words again. I'm not slipping or sinking into a relapse, but having been there and having experienced bullying and how it breaks down the mind, hearing his inspiring words remind to to keep going. I'm worthy, and my life is worth living. I just need to get out my mental prison in my mind.

    Wow. I had never seen that before.

    It's amazing that kids even make it out alive without someone like this guy in their life. But it's great in this age of technology that we have people brave enough to share their story in the hopes that it will reach that kid who's contemplating suicide.
