Watch: Statement by Gay Mother of Slain Teen Jorge Mercado
“When my son told me he was gay, I told him, ‘Now, I love you more.’ I want to tell the world that hatred is not born with human beings, it is a seed that is planted by adults and is fostered creating a climate of intolerance and violence. We must change our ways and understand that anyone …could have been my son. And I want everybody to know that Jorge Steven was a very much loved son.”
Now there's a video from Miriam Mercado, thanking supporters.
Watch, it AFTER THE JUMP...
Vigils were held around the country yesterday.
