Bullying and Suicide
So,the death of little Alex was ruled a suicide.Seriously look at this little boy and tell me what could have been so bad in his life to kill himself over? He had a loving family that adored him a safe comforting home.He was a happy kid who was never mean to anyone,he adored Mickey Mouse,trains of all kinds and the color yellow,so looking in from the outside it looks he had the perfect life.
But,wait it wasn't perfect,he ended his own life on New Years near the train tracks he adored so much because He did not want to return to school after the holidays.He could not face the bully's he had been tormented by before.So he chose to end his own life,how sad and tragic,this breaks my heart.Honestly this strikes more fear in my heart that if some sick psycho pervert were out there murdering children.Why? Because suicide is a silent killer becoming more and more popular among children and young teens,they see no way out of their temporary problem and choose the permanent solution of suicide.
Approximately 30,000 people commit suicide every year in the United States alone.The youngest person to commit suicide in the United states was a 6 yr old Oregon girl after she was sent to her room,she hung herself with a belt in 2010.
Please parents talk to your children,be open and honest with them,do whatever it takes for you to protect them.Hold them close and love them dearly with every breath you have,today could be the last chance you have to tell them how much you love them!
