A Long Way Down To Nothing At All

Good grief, what is wrong with young ones today?

Last week, someone committed suicide in our neighborhood. And then I received news that another one also took her life yesterday! Last year, there were other incidents of suicide, too, fortunately (or unfortunately?) most were unsuccessful. But you have to wonder what these teenagers were thinking to make them decide that taking their lives was the best and only solution to their problems.

It's just depressing. Whoever said that youth is wasted on the young, well, I guess suicide isn't what they have in mind, but it kind of fits, don't you think? So much lives wasted.

And if the night runs over
And if the day won't last
And if your way should falter
Along this stony pass

It's just a moment
This time will pass

Ya, I don't know why so many people are committing suicide these days.. it truly is sad... life is a gift and shouldn't be wasted. Like you said, everything passes..

I agree. It is sad and depressing. Such a waste of life. Most kids nowadays don't realize how beautiful and wonderful life is.
