14-year-old Kenneth James Weishuhn of Primghar, Iowa took his life on Saturday, April 14th 2012, after being bullied for recently coming out as a GLBT teen a few months ago.

I can’t yet verify the facts but will note any change. ( There is a FB tribute  page here). The facts have been verified by a reader. Get more details from the Paulina Times here.

Thankfully here in T&T a number of great young people have set up the  Silver Lining Foundation to help stop this madness.

And LGBTnation  news has a story on the tragedy. When will this stop?  LGBTnews  says funeral Services are scheduled for Thursday, April 19, 2012 at the Grace Lutheran Church in Primghar, Iowa.

The Younger Generation Is Braver than Us? Really?

At the last CAISO meeting  the youth group said they are braver than previous generations. Really?  I think not.  Brave is resisting arrest in New York, Toronto ( my home at the time) and lots of other places.
