nothing will ever be the same
Suicide is one of the leading causes of death for teenagers. Knowing that, doesn't make it any easier to comprehend when it happens. We learned that the younger brother of one of the superkids former school friends has taken his own life last Thursday. He was twelve years old.
He can't have really wanted to do it. It must have been a foolish act of protest, a game that went too far.
I remember him as I last saw him, a sweet boy of four or five, blond as an angel, a bit too wise for his age. I think of him with great sadness. May his soul rest in peace.
