Remembering Lawrence King (Murdered Because He was Gay.)
On February 12th, 2008, 15-year-old Lawrence King was shot and killed at E.O. Green School in Oxnard, California.
A fellow student (aged 14 years old) came into their school’s computer lab and shot Lawrence “Larry” twice in the back of his head
A few weeks prior to the shooting, Lawrence had publicly come out at his school for being gay and endured much harassment every where that he went. He had asked the boy who shot him to be his valentine not realizing the dire consequences. The main group of students that harassed him were the shooter and his friends.
Would you kill someone just because you didn’t want to be their valentine?
He’ll never graduate. He’ll never learn how to drive. He’ll never get his own job. His family and friends won’t ever get to see him again..
..Just because someone couldn’t handle his differences.
Please invite as many people as you can so that Lawrence King’s story can get out there. This horrible event has gotten almost no coverage in the news. If the media isn’t going to cover it, then we will.
