Tragedy

How bad could it be??

One of the women I work with lives with her daughter & grandson. Last night, her 11 year old grandson went home after school & hung himself with a belt.

Supposedly, some kids were teasing him at school and he got into a fight. He was afraid of being punished.

Hold them close, ladies, hold them close.

Oh god how utterly horrible. Very scary. Can they stay little forever?

11 is little. 11 is too little to feel so at loss. I'm in tears.

That gives me goosebumps. That is so awful. I can't begin to imagine what they are going through and hopefully I never will. That poor child. How sad and lost he must have felt...

How horrible, horrible, horrible. Just beyond comprehension.

Oh god that is so sad. I can't imagine why he was scared of being punished, the guilt his parents must feel.

I wonder how that child feels now, the one who was harrassing/picking on this child. Hopefully he learned something through all this.
