A Sad Day

A guy from my High School class committed suicide this week. By all accounts he seemed like a happy, funny guy and since the announcement of his death dozens of people have left comments on his Facebook page telling him how loved he is and what a great guy he is and how missed he will be – I can’t help but wonder if someone had taken the time to let him know all those things before he killed himself… maybe he wouldn’t have?His moms last post before he died said “Hope you are feeling better today” If you see someone looking a little blue or down in the dumps this week please stop and take the time to let them know you care, you never know – that could be the one thing that keeps them from making choices like this 😦

Love, please please be with this family this week. With his sister and parents and cousins and all his friends that didn’t see this coming.  Help them through their pain and anger and bring them to a place of peace.  Love please use this tragedy to prevent another or lead someone on a search to find you.

  1. This is a beautifully touching post. I agree with your thoughts. Often times, people fail to see the signs before it’s too late. They think the person is just depressed or they are battling issues. Many times these individuals are seeking treatment and they still committ this horrible act.

    A dear friend of mine lost her husband to suicide earlier this year. She knew he struggled with suicidal thoughts. He was seeing a therapist. He had 3 children and he still killed himself.
    It is so very sad. Now she is trying to pick up the pieces in her life.

    Keep posting, I like your faith.

    • Aww, thank you for the comment. I am so sorry to hear about your friends situation. Those left behind are just as much a victim as the ones who take their own life. I’m not a fan of saying ‘I’ll be praying for you’ but I will tell you that I lifted her and her family up in my prayers just now. ❤
