Raleigh Students Hear a Grieving Dad’s Story of Bullied Son’s Suicide

By: Tuesday August 14, 2012 5:54 pm

The sad thing about many of the forces that make so many kids feel there is no way out from bullying is that they are universal. They feel alone, that no one can help them. The families, classmates and schools are left behind to think and hopefully learn how to reduce the pain that causes these suicides.
