Subject: So sad...

Denver boy, 9, commits suicide after being bullied, after coming out gay at school.

I didn't even think nine year olds really had it within them to go through with something like suicide. I had a pretty rough childhood and was depressed a lot, but didn't once consider suicide until maybe my teen years. And even then, not seriously.

And now a freaking nine year old, gone for ever, over something as trivial as his sexual orientation, when his life was just about to get started.

It just goes to show that, yes things are getting better, but it's by no means always an easy thing, coming out.

There is some hope though. My 11 year old neice recently came out to me and some other family members, as bi. She felt safe and knew she'd be accepted. And she's not alone in our family. She has two bi uncles, and a gay cousin (that we know of). And it's a large family so there are probably more.


RIP Jamel.
