"Dear Ms. Pieszecki…I’m writing to you because you might be able to help people understand what I’m going through. For the last three weeks, my brother, Wade has been on life support. I have been in the hospital every day praying for a miracle, but this morning, I watched them lower my big brother’s coffin into the ground. My brother’s dead because he wrote a love letter to a guy named Marcus, and Marcus shot him in the face. I’m writing to ask you to please tell your viewers that it is not okay to hurt gay people. We didn’t do anything to them, so why can’t they just leave us alone?"
