My View On Teenage Suicide
My View On Teenage Suicide
Cheryl/Cher MyOpinion/Daughters of Suicide
November 25,2012
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Something that has been in the news lately is the rise of not only bullying but suicides in teens as a result of the bullying. I think it is so sad to see that a child or teenager could be pushed to a point where dying becomes an option. Isn't it time that we all stand up and take notice to this war going on in the place we send our children on a daily basis to get an education? How could we let this get to a place where total control is lost.

I am writing this today because I have been researching this subject for many years now. The things and facts I have uncovered surrounding this issue are pretty shocking. First though I want to point out that my journey at first had nothing to do with researching teen suicide. I lost my mother 12  years ago to suicide and in turn years of my life were lost to depression and self-destructive behavior. As I started to recover from the blow life had given me I had to know why this happened, I later found that question really has no answer, but my main objective was to try to see things differently and understand the state of mind one must be in to make such a decision to take their own life.

I have read books, watched videos, you name it I have done it. When we talk about suicide and depression most think from the standpoint of their own situations. But just for a second I want you to think about it in a different perspective. Most of us know what it's like to be made fun of or to be bullied because kids have done it since the beginning of time. The thing that makes it different now for teens is the fact that not only are they being bullied at school, but when they get home they have 20 hate mail messages, the INSTANT MESSENGER is going crazy with people spreading rumors, so and so told so and so you did this with so and so. EVERY minute of the day in your face HELL.

When a child comes home from school and goes into to their room and an hour later mom goes to check and her daughter is hanging in the closet dead because the pain just got to great that dying felt to be a better option then one more second of the hell they are living in. 

Not only the Internet and the bullying. We have teens killing themselves and other people because now the number of children on Psychotropic drugs has gotten so large it nearly blew me away. We've got more kids on anti-depressants in this country then anywhere in the world. Do you know what happens to a young brain when you go changing the chemical makeup of it? That's playing with fire. We have kids killing each other because they are LITERALLY OUT OF THEIR MINDS!

What the heck is going on here? The world is going mad. We have so much going on it's no wonder every body's negative and grouchy all the time. The stress of the weight caves in eventually. It's disaster of the grandest kind. The war on your mind and the minds of others is being lost. Suicide is a record hi and the number of Americans on anti-depressants is astounding.

How can we justify this? For the sake of all humanity we need to to tackle this head on. The children and the teenagers we are medicating are the future of our planet. What we teach them today they will have to do tomorrow. How can we give them a chance if they are not even safe in their own classrooms because most of the time nobody does anything to stop it? Before one more son or daughter, sister or brother, dies because it's too painful to live, lets wake up and give a voice to those who are not listened to. What it this was your child dead, wouldn't you want to make sure others never had to share in the pain.

Join hands raise your voice and give options that were never given!
