Riley Hadley took his own life after it was decided he should go back to school after a period of home-schooling came to an end, initially a result of persistent bullying. I despair. I will think about a memorial piece, but it is so difficult. I did that when Asher Brown shot himself in the US. Cyndi Lauper set up the True Colors Foundation in response.
