On Tuesday, June 29, a 16 year old girl committed suicide by stepping in front of a semi on a rural highway. Her family goes to our church. She had struggled with depression in the past as a result of alleged sexual misconduct by a swim coach a few years back. She'd gotten help and everyone thought she was doing better. She's been dating a nice boy and had just gotten a job. Evidently she just wasn't able to get past it. I can't imagine the pain the family is going through and I just can't stop thinking about it.
Please hug your teens tight and be watchful for any signs of depression, anxiety, etc.
