Another Devastating Teen Suicide

Filed under: Gay Gay GaySad Sad

This is unreal.

Another gay teen has taken his life after being bullied at school.

The body of 17-year-old Terrel Williams was found hanging in his closet by his mother just hours after being attacked by 5 classmates after school.

A student at Clover Park High School in Lakewood, Washington, Terrel had endured several attacks including being shoved into a wall and even having his ribs broken.

Terrel had written in a note before hanging himself saying that coming out as a gay teen and having a relationship with boyfriend, Daric Rawr were some of the happiest times of his life. The couple would have celebrated their seventh anniversary this Saturday, which would have been Terrel's 18th birthday.

In his suicide note, he also wrote about the bullying in his school as well as apologizing to his loved ones.

"I'm sorry to my immediate loved ones, but I feel suicide is the only way out. Today, was the record worst day of my life, some kids at school stole some of my stuff that I got from people I really cared about, and that really pushed me over the top, next to being shoved into a wall, and my ribs being broken."

Earlier this week, Terrel's mother Cheryl Williams wrote on Twitter:

"My son meant the world, and high school bullies pushed him over the edge. I hope and pray, that no other child ever has to go through what he did. Bullying isn’t worth it. Why can’t people just be nice?"

Terrel's boyfriend Daric said, "He loved life, but felt the need to take it, because [the bullying] didn’t stop … respectful, whole-hearted people like Terrel, and the growing number of others, shouldn't have to feel suicide is the answer, because bullies won’t stop."

We need to have stricter laws to MAKE bullies stop and to also get the message out there that suicide is not the answer.

Terrel had so much more to offer, as did the countless teens who have taken their lives due to bullying.

So sad.

Another Gay Teen Commits Suicide!

Another young life unnecessarily lost.

Corey Jackson, a gay student at Oakland University in Michigan, was found dead yesterday after reportedly committing suicide. The poor boy was a sophomore at the school, 19-years-old, and reportedly was not a victim of bullying by his peers.

However, the campus police found Corey in a wooded area behind the school grounds. The medical examiner confirmed his death was a suicide by hanging.

So incredibly tragic.

The school's president, Gary Russi, issued the following letter of support to the students and to encourage them to honor Corey's memory:

“Any death in the campus community diminishes us all. We know there will be no quick antidote for the pain that Corey’s sudden death has caused, and that only time can heal the sorrow felt by his family and friends. In our mourning, I am hopeful that we will not focus on the manner of Corey’s death, but rather celebrate the life he lived and the people he touched.

Reassuringly, this spirit of community is already evident. Corey’s family and friends gathered in Van Wagoner Hall (Tuesday evening) to talk about Corey’s death and to comfort each other. At 10 p.m. this evening, those who loved and befriended Corey will gather again to celebrate his life on the bridge that crosses Bear Lake.

I encourage all in the campus community to come together and comfort those who need our support at this sad time. I’d also like to share that Graham Health Center is prepared to provide counseling to anyone who feels the need to talk about their feelings or manage their grief.

I’m confident that those who knew and loved Corey will miss him and cherish his memory. I know, too, that we as a campus community will keep his family and closest friends in our thoughts and prayers.”

This just breaks our hearts. We wish he'd known he'd had this kind of support behind him, so perhaps he didn't feel so alone and like he needed to end his beautiful, young life.

So upsetting.

We send our condolence to his family and friends, who are surely feeling his loss today.
