A letter from Carl’s mother

Dear Members of the 111th Congress,


Meet my son, Carl Joseph Walker-Hoover.


April 6, 2009, Carl chose to end his own life rather than endure more of the daily harassment and bullying he suffered at school. He was just 11 days shy of his 12th birthday.


I am writing you today because my son’s story must not be forgotten. I want you and other Members of Congress to look at Carl’s photograph and ask, "How could such a beautiful, precious life be lost so needlessly," and "What can Congress do to prevent more such tragedies from happening in the future?"
