Truly heartbreaking. Such a brave family.

Check out this truly touching clip of she, as well as Seth's brother Shawn, speaking out about their horrible loss on The Nate Berkus Show (above).

Such beautiful and poignant words from that young man. Our hearts truly go out to both of them.

DanRad Has A Message For Gay Youth!

This means quite a bit, coming from him!

Daniel Radcliffe, who has long been an avid supporter of LGTB rights, is the latest to speak out against in response to the recent string of gay teens committing suicides, and is begging confused and troubled young people to reach out to someone before it's too late!

He says in a statement:

"Learning about the suicide deaths of Tyler Clementi, Seth Walsh, Asher Brown, Billy Lucas and Justin Aaberg has been heartbreaking for me. These young people were bullied and tormented by people that should have been their friends. We have a responsibility to be better to each other, and accept each others' differences regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ability, or religion and stand up for someone when they're bullied. When a friend is feeling depressed or says they're thinking of killing themselves, we must take it seriously and get them help. My deepest sympathies go out to the families and friends of these excellent young people. And to all the young people who are being bullied right now, you are not alone. Call the Trevor Lifeline at 866 4-U-TREVOR, because there's always someone there who will listen and who can help."

Thanks for the words, bb! Such an inspiring young man!

It gets better!!! Please don't forget that!

Parents Meet To Prevent Teen Suicide, Inspired By 13-Year-Old's Tragic Death

We're so please they are trying to make something good from this!

Since the untimely death of 13-year-old Seth Walsh, parents of some of his friends are coming together to take action on bullying and antigay taunts hoping that it may save someone's life.

The parents in Tehachapi, California urged the school district to crack down on preventing harassment. They even discussed creating an online forum to combat bullying and providing a confidential hotline to anonymously report bullying.

"All I know is that the tragedy happened," said Jamie Phillips, one of the fathers at the meeting. "I don't know who did it, and I hope who did it understands what they did."

Seth's grandmother, Judy, added:

"He was a very unique and wonderful child and he left us too soon. But we are blessed because he was an organ donor and we found out he gave a heart. So he lives on, just not with us, and that's where we wish he were."

So sad.
