  13. Another loss heartbreaking my prayers are with his family

  14. Anna Rogers Anna Rogers says:

    A lot of young kids taking their lives. We need more mental health access as well as more access to drug programs for the young. Often these young kids have started drugs at a young age, thus as they get older their is more likely hood of depression and anxiety which often can lead to suicide. I’m not saying this young man had a drug problem but even if as a young teenager he experented it could have a lasting affect causing later problems

  30. Carly Fish Carly Fish says:

    This is sad. Please remember everyone is fighting a battle we know nothing about. Be kinder… Smile at strangers,make a conversation with someone who looks like they may be having a bad day… Be mindful. Everyone is so busy and thoughtless these days. Spread love, you may be saving someone’s life.

  31. Very sad tragedy. We never know what’s behind the smile. Mental Health is a health crisis in this country. It’s time we start to treat it like one.

    • Lucy Romero Lucy Romero says:

      That’s right! We never know what’s behind the smile and kindness. Sometimes people who suffer depression are the ones helping others and most of the time hide their feelings… They suffer in silence :'(

  32. So heartbreaking. He may not be in any more pain but what about his family? His friends? I lost a cousin to suicide 2 weeks ago and a friend last Monday …..its absolutely devastating. Why why why????? I hope he is at peace and I send love and light to the people he left behind

  33. Lucy Romero Lucy Romero says:

    All this suicides :'(

  34. More things need to be done for suicide prevention . to many young life’s taken to soon. I’ve lost a few friends and one this year the same way and she was smart beautiful and loved life just struggled with issues and loss of someone she cared about. My heart goes out to this young gent and his family and friends. And I hope this now city finally wakes up and relizes we need a more affordable and open clinics to help with the depressed that we have here.. To many young and older that I know and I feel could have been treated.. God bless and be kind to all you pathways with everyday.
