I never had the pleasure of meeting this young man or his parents, but last night I couldn't fall asleep. I kept thinking of his parents and the heart breaking hel l they must be going through. I'm sure he didn't think of how this would devastate the two people who loved him unconditionally or the financial burden he put on them. This hit me hard thinking of the days my son was bullied a...
