This story literally brought tears to my eyes. As I read it, I began to sob. I can’t begin to image what a child is going through that leads them to make the conscious decision to end their lives. This is extremely heartbreaking, and it has brought me out of youtube hibernation. How bad did things have to be to cause an 8 year old to hang himself? There is no editing in this video/podcast, no branding, this is just a real, raw talk about this devastating situation, and to let you young people know, you are not alone!
