A 19-year-old Oakland University student took his own life on campus Tuesday.OU police said the death of sophomore Corey Jackson from Warren is still under investigation.The Oakland County medical examiner’s office confirmed that Jackson’s death had been ruled a suicide.”Any death in the campus community diminishes us all. We know there will be no quick antidote for the pain that Corey’s sudden death has caused, and that only time can heal the sorrow felt by his family and friends,” said Oakland University President Gary Russi in an e-mail to students. “In our mourning, I am hopeful that we will not focus on the manner of Corey’s death, but rather celebrate the life he lived and the people he touched.”
Jackson’s family said he recently revealed to them that he was a homosexual, and that they believe he was bullied over his sexual orientation. They think the bullying led him to commit suicide.
No more. This is what today was about - bringing attention to what happened before he ended his life.

Here’s her message to GLBTQ youth:
Please, if you’re religious, pray. If not, send positive energy to Laramie, Wyo. tonight. One of our GLBTQ community members needs your support. We fervently hope not to see another name on that tragic list of late. So please, just hope. Reblog this. I believe in the power of a community pulling for one person. Tonight, I am asking you for help on behalf of one person in Laramie, but I know there’s many others out there - even tonight - feeling alone.
If there’s any of you out there feeling alone tonight, you’re not. We are in Laramie, but we are also everywhere. If you need to talk, reach out to the Tumblr community. I answer every message. Call the Trevor Project at 1-866-4-U-TREVOR. They also have LiveChat.

These are people in power, not kids that are bullying a gay teen, these are adults who know better…

I love Kathy Griffin.
The bodies of girlfriends Jeanine Blanchette, 21, and Chantal Dube, 17, were found in a wooded area in Orangeville on Saturday.
After ruling out foul play and a connection to a high-profile murder in September, police are investigating the possibility of a double suicide, reports CTV (watch the video for more details).
The tragic story began on Tuesday [Sept 28] when two friends received “goodbye” phone calls from Jeanine and Chantal and reported them to police. The young women also left behind goodbye letters to family members.
Jeanine’s mother Ellen Blanchette said the police responded quickly that day, but then didn’t take their concerns seriously as the week progressed. Instead, Ellen said, Orangeville police and OPP seemed to think the young women had run away.
On Sept 29, Jeanine’s mother drove to her daughter’s apartment, where she found receipts for hundreds of antipsychotic pills, reportsThe Star.
