There can be no excuses or tolerance for the abuse, persecution, derision, and disrespect endured by EricJames Borges.
What man would let his wife or girlfriend be ganged up on and then mocked, ridiculed, harassed, etc.? Why then do we think it's OK for our children to do it to each other? When you see it, stop it. Stand up for people who are being bullied.
Despite his brave advice to young people encountering similar abuse, Mr. Borges killed himself two days ago. He was just 19.
