I was bullied; I was harassed. Weren't we all, weren't . . .we. . .all.

Yes, almost everybody has been bullied on one side of the scale or another, but this young man wasnt bullied, he was murdered. There is a signifigant difference there.
There is no set age to realize that you're homosexual, did you know at 13 that you were heterosexual? Probably. It's the same thing. You dont wake up one day and go "Oh! Today I think I'll decide to be GAY!" You have no control or choice over the matter, and there is no set time that you're going to realize this. You dont get to choose if you're white or if you're black, if you're short or if you're tall. You dont get to choose if you're gay or if you're straight.
And while some of you are right, there are other things going on in this world that deserve some recognition, but it's all got to start somewhere. I think this boy deserves some kind of recognition, as well as the rest of the homosexual population of this world. This was a terrible thing that happened.
