A heartbroken father from New York is enduring a nightmare no parent should ever have to experience.
In July 2016, his 13-year-old son committed suicide as the result of constant bullying and torment.
Fitzpatrick’s son, also named Daniel, left behind a note about the bullying he endured at school. He also accused the school administrators of ignoring his pleas for help.
The devastated father recently shared a video on Facebook, expressing his heartache through his tears, and sending a message to his son’s bullies… and their parents.
“I hope you never, never have to feel what my family is going through right now,” he said.
“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 and his sisters.”
Now, Daniel Jr.’s family is sharing his story in the hopes that no other parents have to suffer like they are.
If you — or someone you know — need help, please call 1-800-273-8255 for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. If you are outside of the U.S., please visit the International Association for Suicide Prevention for a database of international resources.
