Warning: Mention of suicide, so I’ve placed the following underneath the cut.
In light of some of the posts I’ve seen on my dash today, I have a little story I’d like to share with you…
Last December one of my high school classmates that I’m friends with on Facebook made a post reminding of us an anniversary, something that I hadn’t thought about in quite a while, but something she had every day since it had happened way back in December of 1989 when we were sophomores, probably before most of you were even born.
It was the anniversary of when her best friend had committed suicide.
She’d shot herself. In the head.
She was 15.
