Friends say classmate killed self after bullying on sexuality

Jacob Rogers - December 7, 2011
If people could only understand how hard it is to report about another teenage life lost to bullying, the feelings of loss that the family feels, the memories, the tears...they all come back each and every time we lose another one...then maybe this would end.

Maybe if people - that means you school administrators - would start listening to these kids and take definitive action against bullying instead of sweeping it under the rug because "it's a phase...they're just kids", then maybe this will end. But adults don't like to be held accountable for their inaction. It's something they've passed on to their kids, and they in turn will pass it on to theirs.

By all account Jacob Rogers friends say that kids bullied him at Cheatham County Central High School for the past four years, but in the past few months it had become so bad he dropped out of school.

And Wednesday, December 7th, he ended his life. and I get to add another face, another name to my memories page.
