    I read about Jamie on the day I left for vacation. His suicide was front-page news in the city paper – unsettling to start your vacation reading about yet another teenager suiciding because he was openly gay and bullied.

We all know her, perhaps not well, but we know her well enough to say hello to her. She’s been off work for weeks. It’s hard enough to loose a child for any reason. It has been a media circus around Jamie’s death, and I can’t imagine what his poor mother is going through. R.I.P. Jamie.
