Seth Walsh video from the L.A. Times

Seth Walsh, a sweet kid who was bullied to death like so many others. In many ways he reminds me a bit of myself at that age – a lovable misfit who didn’t and couldn’t fit in. I think this video which has images of his life and the voices of his grandparents who decided to speak out because they feel that people should remember him as am amazing child who was not simply “the gay kid who hung himself” is important.

I think it is well worth watching.

Hope that works. If it doesn’t let me know via comments.

Little things to celebrate

Sometimes I wonder why I blog. It is partially notes to self but then this evening I see that someone from Saudi Arabia was reading about Spirit Day and I realize that  a few words can make someone feel less isolated because they suddenly know they are not alone. They are part of a global family.

Little things make all the difference. I hope amazing kids like Seth, Asher and others somehow know they have made a difference and that one day no kid commits suicide because they feel alone in the world.
