Vigil to Remember Bullied Suicide Victims
COLUMBUS (Ben Garbarek) -- More than a hundred people came out for a vigil at Goodale Park to remember victims of bullying.
Several people got up to speak about their experiences with bullying.
"I was in rural Delaware, Ohio (growing up)," said Dwayne Steward. "I was not only the only gay kid in my school, I was the only black kid at my school so there was bullying from every angle. It's very isolating. It makes you feel like you're not worth anything."
The group lit candles to remember all of the people that have killed themselves because of bullies. They want those people to know they're not alone and that it does get better.
"We have to remember (bullying) is happening," Steward said. "We have to know we need to do more work to make sure it doesn't happen tomorrow."
