It's been two-and-a-half years since the tragic suicide of Carl Joseph Walker-Hoover, the 11-year-old Springfield, Massachusetts boy who hanged himself after months of homophobic and anti-gay taunts. Since the tragedy, mother Sirdeaner Walker has become a national advocate against bullying, appearing on Oprah, Ellen and AC 360, as well as testifying before Congress.
