*From a Column entitled "Two Little Boys", By Charles M. Blow, that appeared in the New  York Times, on April 24, 2009, that was written in response to the April, 2009 suicides of 2 eleven year old boys who couldn't endure the relentless homophobic taunts at school any longer.  May the names of Carl Joseph Walker-Hoover of Massachusetts and Jaheem Herrera of Georgia not soon be forgotten.
