A Little To The Left Greetings

Periodically we’ll feature one of our vendors here to let our readers know about some great people who can help you plan the perfect wedding.

A Little To The Left Greetings was started by Sandi Timberlake, the mother of a gay son and PFLAG member, in 2008. After griping for over 15 years about not being able to find a tasteful card to send to her son and son-in-law on their anniversary and holidays, she realized that she could not be the only mom out there with the same problem. She kept saying “I could make better cards myself.” Finally her son said, “Mom, why don’t you just do it?” So she did.

California 12 Year Old Dead in Apparent Suicide After Bullying

Saturday, December 6th, 2014

Ronin ShimizuThis one hits a bit close to home – it’s in the next city over from where we live, and one of our friends who runs a store there said Ronin was a regular visitor to his store.

Queerty reports:

Last year, middle schooler Ronin Shimizu (pictured) did a very brave thing: He signed up to be the only boy on his school’s cheerleading team. According to sources, 12-year-old Shimizu loved being on the squad. His classmates at Folsom Middle School in California, however, didn’t approve and teased him relentlessly for it, calling him “gay” and hurling other insults his direction. The bullying got to be so severe that eventually Shimizu left Folsom Middle School to be home schooled. Then on Wednesday of this week, his parents found their son dead, the victim of an apparent suicide, though police are not releasing any additional details about the death.

Despite the success of the “It Gets Better” campaign, we’re clearly not reaching all these kids. And while we don’t know for sure that Ronin was gay, it shouldn’t matter. He was bullied and called “gay” by his peers, and no matter what the cause, bullying should not be condoned in our schools. What more can we do to reach kids like Ronin before they take this tragic step?
