Administrators Let A 13-Year-Old Boy Get Bullied At School - Dad Shares His Heartbreaking Suicide Note

A grief-stricken father released his 13-year-old son's suicide note. He wanted the bullies, and the school that did nothing to stop them, to know what his son went through before taking his own life. In his own words, the young victim cries out over the fact that no one would help him.

When 13-year-old Daniel Fitzpatrick took his own life, his heartbreaking story made headlines. The young man's suicide note shows just how bad bullying can be for a victim. Kids taunted Fitzpatrick for his weight and grades.

After an incident in which a bully broke Daniel's pinkie, he said the bullies got in trouble but then never stopped bullying him. The school, he said, did stop listening to him.

"...I gave up, the teachers either they didn't do anything! Not get them in trouble even though they did trouble, I got in trouble instead because Anthony was mad at me because he believed I failed him," wrote Daniel. "I told all the teachers [who did] nothing except one... she was the nicest teacher ever she understood and did something but it didn't last long."

Devastated and heartbroken, Daniel's father took to social media to vent his feelings.

"No parent should have to bury their child. No child should have to go through what my son went through," he said, his voice cracking.

"To the parents of the boys that tormented my son, all I have to say is I hope you never have to feel what my family is going through right now. You get to hold your children every night and day for the rest of your lives and their natural lives. I don't get that anymore. Your little monsters took that from me and my wife."

Holy Angels Catholic Academy put out the following statement: "In light of this tragedy we are reexamining all bullying prevention policies and training. The principal, teachers, and staff of Holy Angels Catholic Academy are heartbroken over the loss of Danny Fitzpatrick. We take the issue of bullying very seriously and address every incident that is brought to our attention."
