Every time you post that kids get high on tylenol-laden pills, you're pretty much implying that they're ok to "dabble" with.

Well, I just finished listening to the whole recording. I'm a thirty year old man who rarely cries, but this one did it for me. Please don't be so quick to slap a label on this kid. He was obviously in a tremendous amount of pain for a very long time. He was very respectful to the lady on the phone, and did exactly as she said, giving away all the correct information, and turning him self in like a good young man.
Yes, this guy was obviously disturbed, but WHY.
I had a friend who committed suicide at age 17. He reminds me of this kid. Huge heart, but he has no outlet for it. Society is hardening up by the day... it's a dog eat dog world out there... and some people can't bare it. My friend shot himself in the chest in our school bathroom. I went to the funeral and fell to my knees flipped out... I tell ya, it's not right, but it roots from something much deeper.
A long time ago I learned that the original interpretation of a ruler was one who imposes reality over a people. This holds true today. Our ruling class is comprised of certain psychological deviations...and they inflict their views onto the rest of us. Those who are most different from this standard are most prone to break down. They are most likely to have their "shadow" take over.
Both my friend, and this guy, did what they felt they must do. It doesn't have to seem rational to you, it most certainly is at a deep level. It's a message, conscious or not. Are we listening? Will we ever? I don't know.
It's tragic. Please be kind to a stranger today. Be kind to your neighbor. Be kind to a family member that's been ticking you off for whatever reason. You may just save a life or two.edit on 18-10-2012 by moniesisfun because: (no reason given)
