Tonight at Tadd's during the Warriors for Jamie event   Jared Palianta listed a number of young people who are no longer with us due to bullying.   I am going to pass that information along here for they should also be remembered.  this really touched me last night and I hope it makes at least one person aware of this problem.  Thanks Jared.

Tyler Clementi, 18, who killed himself by jumping off the George Washington bridge after his roommate secretly recorded him with another male student, then broadcast the video online. In Clementi's case, the young man's roommate, Dharun Ravi, and another classmate, Molly Wei, face several charges of invasion of privacy for what prosecutors say was a surreptitious filming of Clementi in his own dorm room, a recording that they then allegedly broadcast live on the Internet.

Justin Aaberg, 15, of Andover, Minn., who hanged himself in his room. His friends told his mother he'd been a frequent target of bullies mocking his sexual orientation

Seth Walsh, 13 hanged himself outside his home after enduring taunts from classmates about being gay. He died after nine days in a coma.

Raymond Chase, an openly gay 19-year-old student at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, R.I., hanged himself in his dorm room

An 11-year-old Massachusetts boy, Carl Joseph Walker-Hoover, hanged himself after enduring bullying at school, including daily taunts of being gay, despite his mother's weekly pleas to the school to address the problem.

Billy Lucas, a 15-year-old from Greensburg, Ind., who hanged himself after what classmates reportedly called a constant stream of bullying against him at school.

Asher Brown, a 13-year-old from the Houston suburbs, shot himself after coming out. He, too, had reported being taunted at his middle school, according to The Houston Chronicle. His family has blamed school officials as failing to take action after they complained, something the school district has denied.

18, Lundsten had revealed on Facebook that he was openly gay, and some students at Jefferson High School in Minnesota said he was bullied for his sexual orientation.

Eric Mohat, 17, was harassed so mercilessly in high school that when one bully said publicly in class, "Why don't you go home and shoot yourself, no one will miss you," he did.

Jamie Hubley, a 15-year old gay teen who was bullied at school, committed suicide on Friday. His suicide note was found on Tumbl

14 year old boy Jamey Rodemeyer commits suicide due to Gay bullying.The incident occured in Williamsville North High School and according to his parent,the victim faced this bullying problem for years

Have a feeling there are many we do not hear about.   This is a serious problem and I really have a hard time getting it out of my mind.
