14 year old Kenneth Weishuhn, took his life Saturday, April 14, 2012 because he was bullied for being gay. This is tragic and I am so sorry to hear such a bright, caring boy gave up. You will be dearly missed and you will never be forgotten! When will people learn that your words and actions toward young gay people have a huge effect on them? HOW MANY MORE HAVE TO DIE BEFORE THE POINT IS MADE CLEAR?
Friday, as we remain silent for Day of Silence, please remember this amazing young man!
Please join us on April 20, 2012 in supporting the LGBT comunity and remembering all those lost to homophobia. We will be taking a vow of silence and wearing outfits showing support or pride on this day. Last year we had more than a dozen people participate and while that may not seem like many, it was a huge moment for LGBT students at our school. Thank you to those who helped out last year and I cannot wait to see all the purple and rainbows this year.

This blog is dedicated to my boyfriend Ryan who took his life on 29 April 2011 after years of struggle. Not a day goes by that I do not miss his sweet “I love you.” I love you babe and hope one day I can make you proud.
