When I started this blog, it was intended to be an uplifting devotional/spiritual thought page. It turns out that the most read pages are sadly about teen suicide.
I was doing pretty good so far heading into our 2nd anniversary of Isaiah taking his life. Today I heard one of his friends ended her life. Another shockwave through our school. Another gasp through our little town. All the questions. A million “why’s” with no answers. There will be cries of “this has got to stop” and “we need to do something”. Another family that is devastated and friends that will never forget. So much pain. So much sadness. A permanent solution to a temporary problem. Why? I wish I had an answer.
The picture below is from the “safe room” after Isaiah died. Juliet Benson’s name is signed on it. I found it on her Facebook page. I guess tomorrow there will be a “safe room” for her. I wish there was a “safe room” for these kids before they took their lives. . . . I didn’t know Juliet but I’m crying like I did. The pain transfers from one suicide to another. Hug your kids tonight. They need it.
