Anti-Bullying Stand of the Day: In a courageous move for the newspaper industry, Iowa’s Sioux City Journaldevoted the entirety of its Sunday front page to an editorial about a local gay teen who recently committed suicide. Kenneth Weishuhn, just 14, was “a kind-hearted, fun-loving teenage boy,” the editorial reads.
“This is not a failure of one group of kids, one school, one town, one county or one geographic area. Rather, it exposes a fundamental flaw in our society, one that has deep-seated roots. Until now, it has been too difficult, inconvenient — maybe even painful — to address. But we can’t keep looking away.”
