Asher Brown went to a middle school in my daughters' school district. We are extremely angry that the school is denying that the family ever tried to contact them about the torture he was receiving in school when in fact there was many phone calls and visits to the school making them VERY aware of the problem. Our school district says "Zero Tolerance", but that is a load of crap! On the day that Asher took his life, he was kicked down a flight of stairs, his books were then kicked everywhere by another student who then kicked him down the next flight of stairs. The school wasn't aware my ass!

It is simply tragic. There are too many stories, still, about bullying, and the tragic consequences--and not just of GLBTs, either. Any child with any difference can become a victim, and often a silent one, because the fear instilled by the bullies prevents the victims from looking for help. If they do look for help and can't find any, they give up hope and the result is often fatal. It has to stop. It just has to stop.
