Dear Larry, There are no words I can write to express my feelings. I feel so much grief. I never knew you but I feel like I lost one of my kids. I feel anger at a society that looks the other way when our gay youth are hurt. A 12 year old was brought to me by his friend. He was going to take his life because he could no longer stand the ridicule and beatings he suffered at school. When will we ever learn?
We know you are now safe in the arms of God who loves you. My wife and I prayed for you and your family. I am already using your death, and the tragic culture of hate that young assailant grew up in, to educate others. When will we ever learn, when will we ever learn? My heart is numb from sadness.
Dear loved ones and friends, thanks for loving Larry. Your love and friendship meant alot to him, and when you look up into the heavens tonight you'll see a star that outshines the rest. That is Lawrence "Larry" King saying "Thank You".
