Private School Teen Danny Fitzpatrick Left Suicide Note
Danny Fitzpatrick was only thirteen years old when he committed suicide after being bullied by peers at the private school he attended in Staten Island, New York.
Danny’s parents found the note, and shared it with the world in hope of shining a light on the deadly consequences of unchecked bullying. Danny’s note read in part, ” “At first it was good lots of friends, good grades, great life. I moved and went back but it was different. My old friends changed they didn’t talk to me they didn’t even like me.” One of his former friends began bullying Danny. “He bullied me. They did it constantly until I went into a fight.” Danny’s pinkie was fractured in this fight, and he felt that only one teacher helped him at all, a very nice teacher, but it wasn’t enough. “I wanted to get out — I failed but I didn’t care I was out that’s all that matters.”
