A Mother’s Story / The Reason

We are honored to bring you a very special episode of Honest Brutality. In an effort to shed some light on the origins of the Bands Against Bullying movement we reached out to Jennifer, the mother of Erica Smith. Jennifer talks candidly with us about the circumstances surrounding and leading up to her 12 year old daughters unfortunate suicide. The amount of respect we have for this woman’s honesty and courage to come on our show and discuss this can not be described in words alone. We hope that this conversation reaches those that feel alone in similar situations, and take great pride in helping to share Erica’s story.

In Loving Memory Of Erica Smith
