Suicide

Another sad day today with yet another young life ended by suicide!! Word came from the boys school this morning via text message advising the parents that a former student of the college had suddenly lost his life over the weekend and that counselling was being made available to all the boys that have been affected by this.

There was a mass held for all the year 10 students today in memory of the lost child.
My thoughts go out to his parents and family I can only imagine the pain they are going through. 
Why oh why – what a waste of a young life!! The second one we have heard of in a matter of months.  No matter how bad things may appear they will get better, they always do. Life is such a precious gift. 
Rest In Peace

  1. feel so sad for the family and all that were impacted – and this is such a tragedy and I hope schools start adding more and more coping and life skills classes into the curricula for the younger grades – I think it could help.

    ❤ thoughts and prayers w the family

        No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear. I am not afraid, but the sensation is like being afraid. The same fluttering in the stomach, the same restlessness, the yawning. I keep on swallowing.

        anyhow, my heart goes out to the grieving –
