    This is beyond sad….I am very against bullying as a teacher and I try to fight against it when I see it. May he find the peace that he has searched for, but could not find while here. My greatest hope is that this opens the minds and hearts of those who bullied him and all is balanced in the end.

        Great! More proof to me that empathic minds think alike 😉

        The future depends on our kids developing empathy as one of the key traits in order to stop this violence towards each other. When they stop to really think how their actions or words affect others, this is when we will start to have progress in society.

    This is a heartbreaking story, one that very unfortunately happens too often. Bullying is a serious, widespread issue that cannot be ignored. We must listen to this mother’s message, to Daniel’s message. His death, and that of other children like him, must not have been in vain. All of us can help stop bullying – in our children’s schools, online, in our communities. We must do it, for Daniel and for other children like him – and for those who might not be pushed to such a desperate act but will still have physical and emotional wounds beyond their childhood. Thank you for sharing this, for spreading the word, for raising awareness.

    This is very upsetting. As a teacher, I sometimes wonder how some of my… less popular students get along. I remember how livid I became, and then frustrated with myself, when one girl protested to working with another (who was not particularly attractive or well-spoken). It was only then that I remembered “social cliques exist” and some do not mesh.
