Dozens of people took part in a vigil Tuesday night to remember a teenager who killed himself following years of bullying.

The mother of Scott Walz says her son thought suicide was a way to escape the endless bullying. Since his death, Nancy Walz has committed herself to spreading awareness about bullying and its devastating effects.

Their candlelight vigil was meant to bring attention to Scott's story, along with others across the country who killed themselves after being bullied.
