WOW, I never thought this would happen in my neck of the woods. A kid i go to school with and know very well shhot himself today.i am a senior in highschool and i live in a very small town probably about 8000 people. so before lunch some of my friends were talking about how this kid wanted them to go to his house at lunch about 5 of them i guess went over there at lunch time and when they walked in the door he shot himself with a shotgun right in the chest they called the ambulance and they took him to the local hospital where they got him stable enough to take life flight him to a bigger hospital, as of now he is in surgrey and expected to be ok, i guess it just barely missed his heart. this makes the third kid in this year in my school attempt suicide, The other 2 were succesful. I am just in shock that all this is happening in such a small school and a little town like this. probably about 600 people in my whole school.

I live just outside of a town of less than 800 people.:spit:

Sorry for the kid too...I couldn't ever do something like that, much less stage it so kids that I know are going to witness it. I hope he get some serious help from someone, somewhere, because I hate to say it but he's going to need it.:headshake

Lucky for him he is still alive and can some day get past what he's done.

Thats the thing he seemed to be a normal kid, played sports, was on the wrestling team had girlfriends, plenty of friends so i would say he was normal. Had to have had some issues people didnt know about but i cant even imagine it being so bad you would want to do something like that. He wsnt really my friend, just someone i knew, Had him in a few classes I've talked to him several times. definantly going to have to have some help. its just crazy how people can do themselfs like this.I have been lucky enough to have parents tat did a really good job rasing me, i havn't smoked dranked, done drugs ever in my life. I just dont understand what this world is coming too. kids are becoming more stupid ll the time it seems like.

Those things are stereotype, doesnt mean at all that hes happy. Really sorry to hear about it though and im sure when he gets out of hospital he will have a completely different attitude on life.

Man thats too bad. I've had two friends kill themselves and at least one attempt it. But they never involved anyone in their horrible decision. Looks like he was craving attention and went about getting it in the worst possible way. Hopefully he'll see life through different eyes now that he's been to the edge.

Yeah very sad to hear...people have to be at an extremely depressed state to try to take their own life. Hopefully he will get some help and realize that life is short already and nothing is worth making it shorter yourself.

I had a really good friend in highschool commit suicide. One of the saddest things ever. Your friend is very lucky...he basically got a second chance.

Wow Im so sorry to hear about your friend, I hope everything works out for him in the future.

That scares the hell out of me...I have a small boy and it just scares me so much that as a parent, you are doing everything you can to make sure you are raising a healthy, productive, normal child.
