She was tougher than boys twice her age
Heart on her sleeve, never afraid to speak her mind
Her temper was fierce but she loved with passion
She was a tiny little thing, but don't dare tell her that
No matter the obstacle, she would soar over it with a smile
She never complained about the weight of her problems
Always respectful, never wanting to put a burden on others
She was loved by so many, well-known in the community
We thought we knew her, but in the end we failed her


Yesterday, I got news that the world lost a precious soul.  A family we were close to lost their only daughter to suicide.  She was 12 years old.

I don't know all the details of the situation but at the moment, it seems that nobody knows why.  I'm not going to pretend to know what she felt, but by all outward appearances, she was a happy kid.  She got good grades, played sports, had tons of friends, and her parents were very supportive of her.  Why she (or any other child, for that matter) felt that this was her only option, I'll never know.  All I know, is that it could have been prevented somehow.

To anyone who is a parent/aunt/uncle/grandparent/cousin/brother/sister/friend:  please talk to any child that you know about depression and suicide.
