I had something else planned today to share but given the events that took place this morning in Stillwater, Oklahoma, I'm going to save my fun things for another day.
I don't feel like FUN today.
I have no idea what caused an 8th grade student to take his life in the hallway of his Junior High School just before 8AM...but something did. Something was so horrible, so absolutely terrible in this boy's life that he no longer wanted to live. He chose to exit this world in the most brutal of ways.
Can't help but wonder if he chose death over bullying. I'm guessing he did.
I hope I am wrong, but I know I'm not.
The reality of life sometimes cuts in fast and deep and leaves me almost speechless. Even though I'm not without thought I can barely make a sound. I'm so enraged my fingers can barely type.
I'm more than overwhelmed because I know in my heart if not for just a few different things, the child lost today could have been one of my own.
Praying for the families and the students who are hurting today.
Asking God today for strength to seek action regarding the issues that continue to destroy our children.
May God help us. May God help us all.
Love to you...
