Southgate Suicide - March 21st 2013, 09:29 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of suicide, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread therefore might not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

So today around Detroit, MI a rumor went around my school claiming that an eighth grader in Southgate schools had committed suicide. It's true.

He isn't named yet, but he committed suicide around 8:15 this morning in the boys wash room. He shot himself in the head. A student found him. People rushed him to the hospital and on his way there he died from his injuries. People said they didn't even know he was depressed or anything. His friends didn't even know. But they said he suffered from bullying. They just didn't think he would kill himself because at that school they literally take class about bullying and such. A note was left behind, but I don't know exactly what it had said.

I'm just really shocked that this happened and it's really upsetting to me. I only know one eighth grade boy at southgate and I hope it's not him. I don't think it is, but I just really hope it wasn't. It was scary hearing about this in school, I cant imagine what his friends and family are going through.

I'm sorry to hear about the loss. Suicide is unfortunately an epidemic that is growing at a fast rate. I'm sure the community is majorly impacted by the recent suicide, and I will keep all those effected (including yourself) in my thoughts.

If you ever need to talk/vent, feel free to PM me.


Best wishes,
Chris

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...

Thank you guys so much. Some people claimed that he was depressed and bullied, but the school said he never complained about it. Another said he was kind of popular in school... But I'm not too sure

That sounds really tough. I can't imagine how his family will be feeling.

Sometimes people don't complain about being bullied, or even mention that they're depressed. They bottle it up until something snaps, and that's when something like this happens. It's awful but it's true.
