This whole thing is a nice suggestion and all. But I can't help but see it as A bunch of big time gay rights extremist(the ones working for the media w/ lots $$$'s) using these kids to make a point. A political statement. That's how I see it, and to be honest it bothers me.
We don't need six thousand different days for each reason a kid has been bullied. There arent enough days in the year. It all falls under anti bullying, wich needs to be made a daily thing, wether the bully is a school kid, teacher, principle, bus driver, some random guy on the street, or the kids parants. And if a kid commited suicide because of bullying, more than likely, all of the above are responsible.
Billy Lucas was a nice kid, I would have loved to gotten to know him better, but the other forum went and ban him. There was no PROOF that he was gay, he never dated a guy, he never told anyone that he was. People just assumed he was, and spat gay comments in his face. He didnt have a father and his mom hated him. He commited suicide after he and his mom got into a fight. He was completely socially awkword and would go the extra mile just to try and fit in, which is WHY people bullied him. I have a feeling his death is far more related to his home life than anything else. And not one adult in school tryed to help him. His neighbors claimed to be completely helpless.
