Teen Suicide

Teen suicide is so very sad. It is the wrong way to make a statement.

I remember what it was like to be bullied though. It can really make one feel bad. The hurt goes on much longer than the words or deeds done. Some people are blessed with strong bodies and it is shameful that they use them to take advantage of those who are weaker. We need people of all talents to get along in this world.

I think parents need to reevaluate their expectations for their children. I've been to ball games where children were playing, I said playing, and the parents were yelling at each other and getting very angry when their child did not beat all the other children. It takes all the fun out of it. Parents ought to just let the children have their childhood. Cheering is good. Getting mad is bad. Let the kids play. They can get along if we let them.

Anyway, children, suicide is not the best answer. You have one life to live on this earth. You will get feedback from many sources. Ultimately though, you make the decisions for your life. Take the good advice. Ignore all the remarks that would thread you down. You'll make it. Time will pass, maybe the bullies will grow up, but time will pass and things will be different. Hang in there.
