Bill Vitrell
Teen Suicide


Friday at 10:00am a teenage boy was found dead in our neighborhood- he was spotted by those on the adjacent lake, hanging from a tree outside his window. This is for all of his friends and family, to help with their suffering.

When I found out that a boy was found hanged, I didn't know what to think. My mind went blank and I couldn't think straight. I've never felt anything more haunting than such a tragic teen suicide. My heart hurts for his family, and his friends and it pains me to think of how much suffering and agony they must be going through. I only ask that prayers are sent so that they can find comfort and seek eachother out for help while they are grieving. I also pray that Bill is in a happier place, and I hope he knows how much he is missed and how the whole community is feeling this loss.

The hard lesson is that a neighborhood is more than just houses and cars. We need to talk, reach out, pay attention to everyone. Because someone is suffering and we need to find out who. My heart aches for all involved.

Father,I pray that Bill is with you now and has found the peace he was searching for. I also ask that You be with Bill's family and give them comfort when they can find no other. Let his family know that you are with them, that you as the Holy Father, you are also grieving at this loss. Let them know, also, that people are praying for them, sending their love and sympathy. This I ask in Your Name, Amen.

My teenage granddaughter survived a serious suicide attempt. The pain and greif associated with such a tragedy. The parents and friends feel such a sense of guilt and responsibility along with the loss of their loved one. I pray for the balanced emotions of those this young man has left behing. May they release all negativity and use this as a tool to change how we communicate with each other. Most suicide victims do not really want to die, they just cannot think of any other way to end the present, seemingly unescapable pain. Keep watch over his friends. This type of action can oftentimes become contagious as teens dont always rationalize that death is indeed final. When my granddaughter revealed her attempts, she said, " I took some Tylenols. I didn't takt the Aleeve because I was afraid I might not wake up!" She wanted to die to end the emotional discomfort of the moment, but she did want to wake up again when she thought everything might be over. She was 13 at the time. An honor student in High School. I pray for all involved to survive and learn valuable lessons for the future.

I pray for the suicide victim, family and friends. Nothing can bring back this life lost too young but there might be some comfort to know that he is in a better place with God and has no fears or worries. As Charleston Heston said "We, everyone of us, owe God a death" we know not when or how it will occur. It is will hard on family to go on but know that someday you will be together again. May God Bless this family with courage and strentgh and FAITH.

My heart goes out to this young man's family. When my brother died by suicide, I found so much comfort in Jesus' words, "Forgive them, for they know not what they do."
