I Wish Kids Didn't Have To Resort To Such Desperate Measures....

I wish, one person could've heard Abraham Biggs' cry for help, and dried his tears.

I wish suicide would not be viewed as the final answer for our youth...

I wish and hope the day would come sooner rather than later, when Abraham's family will know-it's not ok, but it is alright.
We can't save all of our youth, but we can PAY ATTENTION to the warning signs:
  • Sadness or hopelessness
  • Irritability, anger, or hostility
  • Tearfulness or frequent crying
  • Withdrawal from friends and family
  • Loss of interest in activities
  • Changes in eating and sleeping habits
  • Restlessness and agitation
  • Feelings of worthlessness and guilt
  • Lack of enthusiasm and motivation
  • Fatigue or lack of energy
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Thoughts of death or suicide

I wish...through Abraham's death, another life is saved.
I wish...Abraham Biggs, was alive.

RIP Abraham Biggs

Tough times to be kids! You are right they are all together but still so alone. Even at home, kids live with their families but spend their time online with virtual human contact.

i wanted to kill myself in high school and i talked about it and got in trouble at school when i tried to stave off panic attacks by writing down my feelings in class, which they would confiscate. now even though i think about it often i know i wont ever because if i get close to really considering it i think how it would ruin people who know me. but since i talked about it so much i'm afraid that if i die unexpectedly in some accident they'll wonder if it was suicide made to look accidental. i'm 20
