be a better person, make the world a better place


A ten-year old hung himself today.

I have so many questions and so many fears.

Tell me how on earth a ten-year old knows how to hang themselves?????! HOWWWW?!

Tell me why this world has reached such lows??????!

Tell me how this could happen to someone so innocent?????

HE IS TEN!!!! You know, the amount of fingers and toes you have?? That is how old this boy….. was.

Tell me how on earth this could happen.

I am beside myself, shocked, afraid, scared. What will the world be like when I have kids? Will it even be still around? Will everyone have either killed themselves or someone else? Will there be no good?

I just don’t get it. I understand a teenager because teenage years are hard and if you’re stuck in a rut it can be hell and at during those years anything is possible. I think that most teens go through suicidal periods, depression, and things of that sort. How far they are in that situation is a different story. Everyone has their time and their place and their story. I don’t know what this child’s story was but I can tell you we all hope it wasn’t anything more than it looked. Who knows?

But now, no one will know. Ever.

And then just like that people are all of a sudden so nice, caring, loving, sweet. But what happened before this? Didn’t you realize they had no money to put food on the table? Didn’t you realize the ten-year old boy’s clothes were torn and dirty? Or that he had no food in his lunch box?

Why has this become the only way people open their hearts instead of their mouths? Everyone likes to talk, point fingers, gossip, assume but when tragedy strikes everyone tries to be the first to pay the electric bill, the first to buy new clothes for the family, the first to just give a damn about what they were all so busy making fun of before.

Tell me how this can possible be the world we live in.

I don’t believe this is why the world was created. I don’t believe that there is no good in the world. I don’t believe how the new norm is suicide before even hitting puberty. What on this earth can be so miserable, can be so horrible, for a child? He was just a child.

I just cannot fathom how something so horrible can take place… but then I take a look at the world around me and sadly, it just became a little easier to understand.

It shouldn’t be this way.

It shouldn’t ever be this way.

No one should ever let it come to this.
