Kirk Smalley has lived every parent's worst nightmare. His 11-year-old son Ty committed suicide in 2010 after being bullied in school for over a year. Ever since, Kirk has made it his life mission to end bullying. He's started an anti-bullying non-profit and participated in President Obama's bullying summit earlier this year. Kirk has also traveled extensively around the country, sharing his story at 210 schools.
Smalley spoke to Carol Costello this morning about his anti-bullying efforts and explains how any kid or adult can work to end bullying.
