Misplaced concern

In reference to Kim Rudd's letter "(Who's the real bully?" April 7), Rudd accuses The Signal of bullying the Lasater family.

While I appreciate Rudd's care and concern for the Lasater family, Jeff Lasater has been on a single-minded mission to bring attention to the kind of relentless bullying his son endured before his death.

To that end, Lasater formed Jeremiah Project 51 to battle bullying. The number 51 was Jeremiah's football number.

Lasater has spoken to family-support organizations, founded his own nonprofit organization committed to stomping out bullying and appeared on television and radio programs advocating for children and families who suffer at the hands of bullies.

Project 51 provides kids victimized by bullies and the parents of those victims support through a 24-hour hotline.

It's only natural The Signal's reporters would contact the Lasater family for comments about the seriousness of bullying.
