A true story.
I'm honestly so tired of people acting like they care and going around hugging people like they think we're all going to die tomorrow. But you know what? They ignore the one thing that they should learn from this experience: to stop ignoring the problems and to get help for the people they love.
A boy from my school committed suicide this weekend. I didn't know him, but in a way, I did. I'm sad because suicide makes me sad, and I'm sad for the people who are still alive and hurting, but it's not my pain. I can't go around telling everyone it's my fault and that I should've seen it coming. There are people, I'm sure, who do feel that way. But the people who never gave him a thought in his life shouldn't be using this occurrence to hog all the attention. Instead, it should open their eyes, and maybe they'll see it coming next time, when it's someone they actually cared about. Maybe they'll be able to stop it.
