I'm just back from seeing the play Dead Serious About Life. It is a group of Christian teens from our area who do this play and 3 of "my kids" from church were in it. They were great by the way, and I'm not just saying that becuase I feel like a "mom" to them. The play is definately worth seeing if it is ever in your area (they travel the U.S.) as it deals with many of the issues teens face.
One issue it deals iwth is suicide. In fact, if you see the play you will witness a young man fatally shoot himself (not for real of course). I thought I would be OK during that scene but it was far more difficult than I had thought. On April 17th it will be one year since my cousin Brad committed suicide and I still miss him so much. There is a lot I could say about Brad but I'm almost late for work and I have the world's slowest computer so for now, I'll just post a pic of him (a bad one at that) and say that please, if you know of someone who you think might be considering suicide, please do whatever it takes to get them help. The pain they leave behind is huge.
