Tragedy has struck some life long great friends family today.

Their 12 year old son took his own life this morning, no one knows any thing about how or why ! Right now it's not important.
Knowing he is gone was enough !

Keep your kids and grand kids close people, listen to them, watch what they say and how they say it, talk with them, but don't badger them either, most times we can see through them if the communication is there !

It's a very rough world for kids these day's and many of us made it past that time, still many don't.

Say a prayer for them if you have a mind to, I'm sure they will need much comfort for some time !

Thank you !

Parents have told us that it was a case of bullying, that they were trying to get a handle on with him, evidently a long term thing they were not aware of until just a bit ago !

Prayers are with you and your friends families! I have a seventeen year old, I feel so sad for what they are forced to deal with in their formative years now. Prayers for all those dealing with mental health issues.


Long live the MAGA King

There are no words to describe what the family is going through. Anyone who has lost a child by any means knows this.

All my thoughts and prayers are with the childs family and friends.

That is terrible. What we are doing to kids during this lockdown/Covid crap is going to be irreversible.

I can’t imagine what must be going on in a 12 year olds life for them to make that decision. My condolences to all impacted by this tragedy
