    Really sad that a kid feels so bad about himself that death is the only way out. I hope he recovers and gets the help he needs.

    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Extremely sad. Honers Student with 80 hours of community service. It would seem he would have a lot to live for.

    Heavy news coverage here, its a shame but of course there is an overreaction-"Security will be heavy when school resumes" etc.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    For a long time I have felt that the real tragedy in these types of situations, is that someone gets to the point in their life that suicide seems like the only option. Often, it is a series of events that lead up to their decision.

    I say this over and over.

    When gun violence is in the news, it becomes attractive to the weak. It's an easy way to become famous, or in this case to go out in a blaze of glory (you'll all remember me now!).

    When the media has the faces and names of killers such as the Boston bombers plastered in front of people 24/7, it ENCOURAGES VIOLENCE in those that feel that they have nothing to live for.

    That most likely means he didn't have a lot of friends. There is a prevalence of isolation in high schools today. Kids who work hard on school work and such, often don't have time for anything else. There needs to be balance.

    Prayer sent. May he have a speedy recovery, both in body and mind. Through the Lord, all things are possible.

    A family member tried that once. I told him if he ever had that thought again to let me know and I'd save him the trouble. He has yet to try again. I guess he fears me more than suicide.
