With A Heavy Heart. Love And Listen To Your Children. Tears…..

By Eowyn @DrEowyn

Suicide is not painless!

Why do people commit suicide? I do not know. Only God , and the person pulling the trigger knows I guess. I’ve often wondered how much despair it would take to actually go thru with it.

Sunday night at around 8 PM a young man/boy named Ryder (17)  who lives about 10 house from me reached that point. Put a rifle to his head and well….

My son has known him for 12 yrs. Ryder is 2 yrs older so the last few yrs they really did not hang out much.

Kid seemed nice. Good at sports at H.S. (same school as my son) Lot’s of friends.

Drive by his house and there is a mountain of flowers. Guess the kids from school needed somewhere for there grief. Very sad to look at.

Sit and listen to your children. Love them unconditionally. Let them know that no matter what they can come and talk to you.

I think my son knows this. I pray he does. Yet I find myself terrified today.


Please say a prayer for Ryder and his family. I do not know how you recover from that. I know the Family of Nick who chocked are still dealing with it.

PS, I’ve come to find out more to the story. Don’t know why, but as I drive by the flowers now it seems different.

It seems this was a case of Teen Domestic abuse. Young Ryder apparently went to his girlfriends house and beat the shit out of her. At least broke her nose. Some say she is hospitalized. Then he took a shot at her, thank God he missed.

He then returned home and ended his own life.

This poor girl will have to live with this the rest of her life.

Please say a prayer for her.

I just don’t know what to make of the whole thing anymore. Just damn tragic.

Please say a prayer for all involved.

Thank you for letting me get this off my chest.
