Teen Dies of Suicide at 14

Jamey Rodemeyer’s parents believe years of bullying drove their son to suicide. The Williamsville North freshman took his life Sunday, he was only 14 years old.

He was one of thousands of netizens who made a It Gets Better video, posted below.

People would constantly send me hate, telling me that gay people go to hell…

That’s all you have to do. Just love yourself and you’re set. And I promise you, it’ll get better.

We never knew him, but one can tell that he was a very nice person who had all his life still ahead of him. I sincerely hope that when he couldn’t take it anymore and decided to end his life, he didn’t believe that Hell was actually a real place… I hope he left us in peace.
