  1. I hope the young man is ok, make contact with someone you know so you can get the help you need if you are able to.

    1. Let’s be real here, it’s probably too late that why he was up there sending messages in the first place. real shame too 17 is NOT enough time to come to those conclusions.

    2. Unfortunately it’s definitely too late for that. Friends and siblings need to contact adults if they think someone is suicidal, because the person themself may not make that call for help.

      1. Teen suicides up 60%. More proof we shut this country down for nothing you ignorant sack of crap, RealityCheck.. I blame these suicides on people like you.
