    An absolutely heartbreaking story! I hope you don’t mind that I’m adding a link to the story I just published about this tragedy: http://hulshofschmidt.wordpress.com/2011/09/22/helping-bullied-kids-find-the-power-within-is-everyone’s-responsibility/

    Jennifer, I hope you realize now how important it is that you are such a strong ally for the LGBT community. More people will listen to you just because you are heterosexual and I am so elated that you consistently show social courage and integrity!
