Sirdeaner Walker took photo and legacy of her late son, Carl Walker-Hoover to the White House for anti-bully conference

Sirdeaner Walker took photo and legacy of her  late son, Carl Walker-Hoover to the White House for anti-bully conference | Bullying | Scoop.it
She told the president how she held him up as a role model for Carl, telling her 11-year-old son that the new president also came from a single-parent household and how she said “Carl, you can be anything you want to be.”

After being tormented by bullies at school, he hanged himself in April 2009 at their family home in Springfield. http://bit.ly/fB7aXM
