Mother of 13-Year-Old Who Committed Suicide Urges Schools to Prevent Bullying
After years of enduring anti-gay harassment at school, Seth Walsh, 13, hanged himself from a plum tree in his family's back yard.
For years, Seth's mother, Wendy Walsh, tried to get Tehachapi, Calif., school district officials to do something about the abuse Seth was experiencing at school, but she says her pleas for help were often brushed aside.
In this video, Walsh tearfully reads her son's suicide note and describes the unbearable harassment at school that contributed to his death.
The video is presented by the American Civil Liberties Union, which advocates passage of the Student Non-Discrimination Act to help make schools safe and fair for LGBT youth.
