Before he hanged himself, a 13-year-old wrote this letter. His parents only want that his story be told.
Daniel Joseph Fitzpatrick was just a few weeks shy of his 14th birthday when he took his own life. His 17-year-old sister, Kristen, found him on August 11, hanged with his own belt. His parents, Maureen and Daniel Sr. , were overwhelmed with grief but they didn’t want to let that stop them from sharing his important and heartbreaking story. Daniel had been relentlessly bullied until he saw no other way out.
