Tyler Long

Our son, Tyler Long, committed peer abuse driven bullycide on October 17, 2009.

We are David & Tina Long from the film ‘Bully’

In honor of Tyler, we strive to find solutions to the bullying epidemic. We vow that Tyler’s voice will never fall silent.  We have started the non-profit Everything Starts with 1.

 Since Tyler’s death in 2009 from Peer Abuse Driven Bullycide, we have worked with countless organizations, schools, and individuals to keep another family from having to bury a child.  Tyler was bullied for years; Tyler had Asperger’s Syndrome. Our voices will not fall silent until a difference is made.  Being a part of the film ‘Bully’ allowed us to tell Tyler’s story.

WE ARE SOLUTION FOCUSED,
STUDENT DRIVEN, AND COMMUNITY ORIENTED.

“While they’re not educators and didn’t set out to be public speakers, their appeal and courage was as strong as anything I’ve seen. A heartfelt appeal from a mom. We can do better. We need you to do better, future teachers. A burning question from a dad. What will be your legacy?

With all due respect to the famous speakers I’ve heard, they weren’t in the Long’s league Wednesday. They were pin drop powerful.” Click here for full article
