I can imagine how he felt. I was treated much the same way when I was younger. I remember that in grade school the teacher had played a tape about a kid committing suicide and after the class seeing that they all looked straight at me since I was pretty much a loner throughout all of grade school. I hated school. Every single day was a nightmare for me. I feel bad that he ended his life like that... I'm very sorry to hear that. I know what he went through as I went through the same thing from around grade 2 to grade 10.The Youth
According to the Chicago Tribune, on Monday, August 26, 1996, tragedy struck a Fort Lauderdale, Florida, family. Two boys found their twelve-year-old brother Samuel dead in their yard. He had hanged himself from a tree. Beneath the tree were a step stool and a flashlight.
There was little mystery about what had provoked Samuel to end his life. Samuel had a weight problem, and this would have been his first day at a new school. He had told his family that he was nervous about going to school because he was afraid of the teasing that would likely come from the other children.
There are few things more painful than shame. One of the great kindnesses we can do for others is to take away their false shame through acceptance and affirmation.
A lot of the youth today have experience the following:
- Peer pressure
Yeah, the kids don't realize the harm it does. Nor will it change. They like to build them self up and the best way for them to do that is by bullying others. It's all pride... But as Jesus would say... "Forgive them for they know not what they do". They haven't matured so they can't know the damage it causes.I could only imagine the fear he must have been feeling in order to feel that was his only way out. It is a sad truth that some of our youth don't understand that children who suffers through this has feelings. But, I am sorry to hear that you experienced this. But thank God because He bought you through it.
Okay but make sure you warn me if I'm getting a little whiny or complaining about my problems. I don't want to bring the forums into anything negative or sad.You are doing just fine. God may have you expressed yourself a little to help someone else who may be experiencing the same thing. It was God who bought you through. You never know if another younger person is here seeking help in how to get through their trials. God brings us through things so that we can help others who may be going through the same thing. So, don't apologize, you never know who may need to read what you just said.
