i read this late but he'll be in my prayers...
all of the members of this site have a duty just to pay attention and people are right a simple smile a simple hello can help these kids who feel like they are alone...
a good buddy of mine (met him recently didnt know him at the time of the incedent) was on a bridge ready to jump... something as simple as a sunset was all it took for him to say lifes worth it i want to see that again. and his life has really turned around for him, hes got a great girl who supports him, hes got friends who support him and everything and he often tells me how he thanks God everynight for that sunset, but he agrees that all it takes is a simple hello, a simple smile... as he was walking home that day from the bridge he walked past a bus stop and got to talking with someone who smiled at him and seemed to genuinly like him, and he said that that was the most amazing feeling ever.
Everyone needs to feel wanted, needed, and most of all loved. Heading back to school in the fall i think it would be great if every person that reads this goes up to that one "outsider" kid and says hi and talks to them for at least a few minutes... you may be surprised at how interesting some of these kids can be once u get past their exterior. Being a teenager is tough, you feel lost and inbetween everything, their is no sense of belonging... people need to feel like they belong...
Make an effort, Make a friend, Save a life...
