Beowulfthehunter Posted April 25, 2008 Share Posted April 25, 2008 I get to work on Monday and we come to find out one of our co-workers (the principal's nephew) commited suicide over the weekend. It hit many of us hard, me especialy after having just spent 36 hours with the guy on an overnight camping trip with out 7th graders (that hit a few of our students pretty hard). Combine that with the fact he was my age (20s) it just did not make sense. I went to his wake today...pardon me....tried to go to his wake. There was a line out the freaking door of people to give this kid a send off, former team mates, GFs, friends family, etc.... This guy had so much ahead of him. He was in good health (you should have seen all the fitness awards he had won through college and HS) a multi-sport team player, and do not even get me started on the fine women giving this guy a send off at his funeral. He was more then likely going to get hired at our middle school full time, things seems to be so bright for this guy and he just ends it. Now many of the guys I know (self included) have pretty crappy lifes so if any of us ended it it would make perfect sense, but not this guy. Now I know the whole notion of senseless is the lack of sense, but I just need to muse out loud. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
