This is Josh's story... He committed suicide on 4/30/15. He was a 17 year old boy on the football team. He had many friends and was always the life of the party. He was the one person that seemed to always put a smile on the face of anybody he met. However, Josh was not what he seemed. He was diabetic. He was bullied. No, those were not the only reasons, but he got in a fight during first hour that day and started choking the boy before he was pulled off of him. He was imediatly expelled. Sadly, before third hour, Josh had gone to his grandmother's house and overdosed. The entire school cried. His best friend shattered his phone and walked straight out of the school and went home. His ex girlfriend was hysterical. The teachers cried, the freshmen, sophmores, juniors and seniors cried. There was not a single person with dry eyes that day. Joshy was a very loved person even though he felt the need to take his life. Please, don't cause your community the pain Joshy caused us. Get help. Live.

That's beautiful and tragic.

The one thing keeping me alive is the fact that we only get one chance, if you kill yourself your losing that chance to accomplish your dreams
