remembering Carl Joseph Walker-Hoover

It is now Noon in NYC and I am remembering Carl Joseph Walker-Hoover Carl took his own life on April 6, 2009 after enduring constant bullying, including being called "gay" and "faggot" despite not even identifying as gay.

Please spend 5 minutes in Carl's memory and CALL YOUR Representative and ask him/her to support (or... thank them if they already do) the Safe Schools Improvement Act, a comprehensive federal anti-bullying bill.

If you don't feel comfortable calling your Rep, consider spending 5 minutes in some other way to remember Carl and raise awareness about bullying.
