That is something scary to go through. I hope that things have worked out! I personally have seen someone try to commit suicide. These types of people are not thinking clearly enough to know of what they are doing not only to themselves or family.
What are your thoughts on suicide? Some people who have either done it or tried to do it have the mind set that its the only way to deal with their problems and to kill themselves that they would be better off.

No one is perfect in this world. People pick on too many people. This world is going downhill fast and there is nothing we can do. Another reason why I am glad that I homeschool my children.
