“A Cry for Help” makes me think of what my friend did. We used to work together, then she quit and found a new job. We lost touch, and I just found out that she recently killed herself. When I found out, it was the worst day of my life.
At the funeral I heard that she shot herself in her car after leaving school one afternoon. I think she was really upset that day. She did not die peacefully, she died with a lot of pain and you could feel it. Poor Kati never said a word, she never asked for help.
