In The Life - Bullycides

"I want people to know my son is not alive because of what happened to him in his environment at school. I could not protect him between the hours of 8 to 3."
-- Sirdeaner Walker

Studies show that youth who are bullied are five times more likely to be depressed and to report suicidal thoughts. LGBT children and those who are perceived to be gay, lesbian or challenge traditional gender roles are among those most likely to be targeted by bullies. In this look at the most tragic outcome for kids tormented by kids, we meet the heartbroken families of Carl Joseph Hoover and Erik Mohat who are fighting for federal legislation to protect all children.
