I was saddened today knowing my 20 year old nephew was attending funeral and wake of a fellow Uni student. They have just finished their degrees and should have been celebrating new beginnings. So very sad when this happens – and it is all too common. I still remember a fellow student saying very kind things to our entire class one day, and committing suicide that night. Not one of us had any idea of this persons personal dilemmas and intentions – the guilt and what ifs linger forever. Today brought these feelings back again. Let’s try to look out for our youth and be there as best as we can.
