Suicide and pleas

Image result for suicide hope quotes

It seems that grief is never far from me

I had a student who I worked with for 2 1/2 years

I last saw him four months ago because he moved to a new school

He committed suicide last Thursday

He was 14 years old

I can still hear his voice and see his face clearly

I found out this Wednesday

I cannot express how much my heart hurts when I think about it

There is so much I want to say but it is still incredibly raw for me

What is most important is this:

Parents, please spend time with your children

Please tell them how much you love them

Please get them the help they need

Please do not ignore your child’s cries for attention

To anyone who is considering suicide:

You have no idea how many people actually care about you

You have no idea how affected they will be by your absence

Your life is important

You are precious

Please get the help you need

You are not alone

I’ve been there too

And now I know that dying is not a dream to aspire to
