SINCLAIRVILLE - John Halligan lost his 13-year-old son Ryan to suicide on Oct. 7, 2003. Since that time, Halligan has been instrumental in getting legislation to address bullying and mandate suicide prevention education enacted in Vermont and has told his family's story worldwide through radio, television, and print. He has given presentations for students and parents throughout the United States and created a website www.ryansstory.org that contains not only Ryan's story but resources for parents.
