Ricky Martin and Lady Gaga are among the celebrities who have tweeted support for bullied eighth grader Jonah Mowry.

Mowry says he's been a victim of bullying since the first grade.

Accompanied by the track Breathe Me from Sia Furler, Jonah tells his heartbreaking story through a series of postcards in a nearly 5-minute video originally posted on YouTube in August and viewed more than 500,000 times.

“Hi!:) I'm Jonah,” says the first card, which he holds up to the camera.

“Suicide was an option … many times,” a later card reads.

“The first time I cut myself was in the SECOND GRADE.”

“I get bullied everyday. This started in the 1st grade.”

As his eyes begin to well up, Jonah says: “I'm scared to go back.”

“A lot of people hate me. I don't know why. But I guess I kind of do. Because I kinda hate me too.”

“Gay. Fag. Dick. Douche. Homo. Asshole. The list goes on and on.”

“But,” he adds, “I'm not going anywhere. Because I'm stronger than that. And I have a million reasons to be here.”

He drops the cards, waves goodbye and turns off the camera. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

“Sending @JonahMowryReal one big rib breaking hug :0)! Stay strong buddy! You are 1 courageous young man!!” singer Ricky Martin tweeted.

Lady Gaga added: “Thank you Jonah for being brave enough to share your story + showing us strength. You matter to millions.”
