Never stop dreaming, it's what changes the world- Cameron Jon Weisz

There is one word I can never say anymore. I refer to it as the forbidden word. That word: Suicide. Yeah, people joke about it like it's no big deal. But, news flash, it is. Recently my friend Cameron, took his own life. It kills people to hear that the cause of death was that horrible word that should never be spoken in the first place. He was 16,and had so much of his life ahead of him, not to mention he was always happy and smiling. I'm telling you, as a person whose been close to it and as a person who is grieving from it, if you feel alone as if your life has no purpose and you want to end it, tell someone. The last thing people want to do is spend their Saturday at a funeral for one of their best friends.
