On today's episode of Oprah there was an unbelievably heart-wrenching conversation between two mothers whose 11-year-old sons died only days ago. The boys were not friends, they did not even live in the same state, but what they had in common was the fact that they were tortured by bullies.
They hung themselves merely days apart. I'm not sure if there is more to say.
