Bullied gay teen in Oregon is taken off life support after hanging himself

Please pray for this young beautiful soul, his family and friends and yes even those who did this to him, because God will hold them accountable for this ugly and tragic act.

Jadin Bell, 15, had asked his parents to home school him

29 January 2013

A gay Oregon teenager has been taken off life of support more than a week after climbing onto a playground structure at a local elementary school in the city of La Grande and hanging himself.

Jadin Bell, 15, was being bullied in person and online because he was gay, a family friend told Komo News. He had recently asked his parents to allow him to be home schooled because he thought turning in the bullies would only make the situation worse.

'He was different, and they tend to pick on the different ones,' said the friend, Bud Hill.

Bell was a sophomore at La Grande High School where he was a member of the cheerleading squad.

"If someone was down and out he would walk into a room and say a couple quick words and everybody would just forget about their problems and smile,' Hill said. 'He just had a gift.'

More than 200 people attended a vigil last week in honor of the teen. After the event, friend Jody Bullock told The LaGrande Observer: 'He is amazingly sensitive. If he saw a wounded butterfly [as a child] he wanted to heal it ... He is an amazing young man who is smart and very social; he has a persona and a presence that you want to be a part of.'

GOD, So many things wrong in this world, How can we stand much more.


We stand in unity and love remembering those who have died and make up our minds, that they shall not have died in vain, because, little by little we are winning the war, although we may lose some battles along the way.

I just thought this up, yes folks you heard it here first!

"A real man doesn't hate another man for loving another man!"
