    They need to teach how to handle stress and conflict from the very first day of school, all the way through. Stress also leads to substance abuse.

    We need to look out for each other. Any first attempt needs investigation and the appropriate help be rendered.

    We need to stop thinking that our people are not serious when they express or articulate words suspected to convey suicide.

    Let’s rally together and stop some sick soul from committing such crime. Time to share love and compassion. There us no time for bad mouthing.
    Peace!!!! Prayers to the family…
