teens for a rare look at the issue of bullying and teen suicide. 3 area
teenagers have killed themselves in recent weeks. All of them say they
were bullied because they were gay. Now, we let adult decision makers
listen in to our teen panel. Beth Hail watched our panel of teens. She
works with students through Centerstone's school based counseling
service. We talked first about the 3 recent suicides. Homosexuality is
the thread weaving together our 3 local suicides. We also brought in
Representative Joey Hensley, the House sponsor of what's been dubbed the
"Don't Say Gay" bill. Hensley says the bill originated because parents
in Knoxville were upset their children were exposed to materials at
school contrary to the teachings of natural human reproduction. If you
or someone you know needs help, tell them to visit www.crisischat.org
online to connect with counselors in real time, or you can call the
National Suicide Prevention hotline at 1.800.273.TALK. We have FOX LINKS
for both at www.fox17.com.
