No actually he was engaged at the time, and she had actually just been on base with him for the first time only a couple days before it happened. Her
parents wrote on his wall afterwards thankful that their daughter had got to be with him then, soo it doesn't seem to me like he was having any
relationshiip issues at the time.
Now the alcohol is a really good point to be made because he liked to drink socially like at partys and stuff, but he also definintely had less of a
tolerance to it than most others so he wasn't partying too hard... but I could imagine an Alaskan army barracks to be quite a liquered up place (From
what i've heard soldiers love to party off-duty), so I could imagine that to be the place to begin a problem with it at.
oh and thanks man, our towns had more than enough share of them in recent times. I remember my senior year I came back from thanksgiving break to find
out the kid who sat 3 seats down had killed himself that morning. But this kid acted much differnely than Shane- he'd be sleeping in class all day,
he'd do projects but was too afraid to present them, he was the kind of kid that you actually worried about if you knew what to look for. i actually
had the chacne/random idea to ask him to study with me and my friends one day because I was best friends with THE class clown in there... I hesitated
and turned back on the idea. DONT do that people! When its a good idea just go with it, if you hesitate acknowlege the hesitation and still go with
it. And whether or not Shane went down the same path, I still will regret not reaching out to him while he's been away even though I've had the
'random' idea to on more than one occasion.
"I show you sorrow" said the Buddha realistically. But through sorrow we find the ending to all sorrows- awareness.
^Read the Island by Aldous Huxley if you think thats some good stuff. He made it a year before he died and he considered it the culimination of all
his life's work. If you could consider Brave New World as a blue print for the manipulation of society as a whole, then you will most definitely
consider the Island as a blue print for the psycological recovery of an individual and society as well.
