      Would you have preferred he use a knife? Or jump? Or drive his car into a cement pillar?

    There sure are a lot of people with serious self esteem problems, as though they finally realize that they are not a “Special Snowflake” seeking their own deaths.

    Or suicides by cops, if they lose their nerve. No collateral damage this time around.

    Pull the kid’s medical records. He’s probably been on Ritalin since the third grade.

    I work with the young man’s father here in Little Rock, AR. Instead of tearing the man down, we need to be lifting up his family in prayer. Yes, he shot himself, but we will never know what he was going through. Now his family is left to pick up the pieces, we must wrap our arms around them and support them, not tear them down.
