A Terrible Loss

On Monday February 4, a 15 year old boy brought a gun to his Oklahoma High School, and took his own life in a bathroom stall.  His name of Triston Stephens.  Authorities say there is still no exact answer as to why he committed suicide, although they believe bullying may have been involved.
R.I.P Triston
If you are being bullied, don't be afraid to ask for help.  I know it's scary.  I know it's hard.  I've been there.   But there are people who care, who will listen, even though you may not feel like it.  YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
If you are thinking about suicide, please, please talk to someone, or call the suicide hotline for your area:

Don't give up on yourself.  You are beautiful, wonderful, and perfect the way you are.  You deserve to live.  This world would not be the same without you.  
Peace, Love, Music<3

  1. Very nicely put Jessie. The 38 years that have pasted from me leaving school is sometimes not long enough to forget the bad times, but there is so much more to life once those (school) days are in your past. I send my thoughts and support to all of those who need it.
