Masika remembers her son's suicide.
Masika says Jaheem came home from school on April 16, 2009, in a good mood. "He showed me his report card. I high-fived him," she says.

Then, Jaheem's sister told her another child had called Jaheem gay. "He got upset," she says. "I sent him upstairs. He usually [goes] upstairs and plays with his toys and gets over it."

When Masika went upstairs to get Jaheem for dinner, she made a tragic discovery. "I unlocked the door; I saw my baby there hanging," she says.
