  1. Thank you so very much for keeping this bullying issue alive, cause it seems like what happen to Jaheem was put on the back burner..everybody speaking about bullying and and never once mentioned who started this conversation .. unfortunately Jaheem’s untimely death. Soon I will get back out there with my rebuttal..
