I always say how bullied I am, but no one listens, what do I have to do so people will listen to me?
– Jamey Rodemeyer’s final post to Tumblr

Jamey Rodemeyer, aged 14, killed himself this weekend. At 14, Jamey was just a boy. He had endured years of bullying, at school and online.
We, as parents, are responsible for our children. We are responsible for feeding them and sending them to school and making sure they’re healthy and clean. We are responsible for loving them and teaching them how to love others. We must treat them with respect and teach them to treat others with respect. We can not control their behaviour, but we can, must, teach them what is right and what is absolutely unacceptable. We must own this responsibility.
