Suicide

Another student whacked himself. Hung himself. Last one shot out his guts with a shotgun.Less than a month ago. This one was a Junior in High School. I feel incredibly bereft.

I feel your pain. I was a youth minister and had a student shoot himself. It is sad. I cried for months. The church game me no support what so ever. One of the elders said, "Why did this happen if we had a youth minister?" I felt rejected by the church and God. I was angry at God and ran from God for almost 18 months. Did everything I could to rebel. Then God found me again. I am striving to reach out to the emerging generation who needs Jesus Christ. I want you to know that my prayers are with you and these families.
In Him,

Suicide is the worst, for so many reasons. Losing two friends to suicide and then being a therapist, I can honestly say that the my heart aches as it is the worst crime against one's self and the ones that they leave.

Suicide is a permanent solution to a very temporary problem. Sorry to hear that.
