As some of you know I work out of my boss' house, so you get to know the neighbors pretty well. I found out that the 15 year old girl that lives across the street killed herself over the weekend. They dont believe its was a suicide, just her looking for a new "high".
Her folks got divorced a few years ago and she never dealt with it well apparently. I guess she's been "experimenting" with pot, and was a "cutter" (if you're not sure what that is, it's when you purposely cut yourself with an item). I guess they found her asphixiated with a belt around her neck in her room Friday night.
Parents, or people with loved ones with kids, please pay attention to the warning signs. If a neighbor express' concern that their child might be doing something harmful to themselves because their child told them so, dont say "mind your own business" (this unfortunately happened with the girls mother and another neighbor who has a son who was best friends with her) look into it more closely.
And please, just love your kids. I may not have them, but I can certainly feel the loss of the family and it saddens me to no end. My heart bleeds for them, it's such a terible tragedy.
