Daniel Joseph Fitzpatrick was only a couple of weeks short of his fourteenth birthday when he took his own life. His 17-year-old sister, Kristen, discovered him on August 11, hanged with his own belt.
His folks, Maureen and Daniel Sr. , were overpowered with pain but they would not like to let that prevent them from sharing his important and heartbreaking story. Daniel had been tenaciously harassed until he saw no other way out.
The teenager composed a multi-paged suicide take note of that his folks chose to distribute. He depicts how his 6th grade classmates and previous friends at his Catholic school abruptly betrayed him and how he had been subjected to every day harassing assaults:
“… Anthony took it all out on me. He bullied me along with John, Marco, Jose, and Jack they did it constantly until I went into a fight with Anthony everyone stopped except John he was angry…
I ended up fighting John and got a fractured pinkie,” Daniel, also known as Danny, wrote that they teased him because of his weight, his grades, because he wasn’t as “tough” as the other boys. “I gave up. The teachers either didn’t do ANYTHING.”
“My son’s story is now out there for the world to see and for the world to know the pain that he went through,” said Daniel’s father in a voice hoarse with emotion in an 18-minute video he posted on Facebook.
