How Hard It Could Be?

There's this kid in my class  who has always, since elementary school, been known as the troublemakers. He was infamous for that, but he's also incredibly funny. Well, last night his older brother went into a vegetative coma after attempting suicide. The kid wasn't here today in class. And the older brother? He has a twin.

Everyone wouldn't stop talking about it. Apparently, someone had texted everyone in the 8th grade to wear yellow. And since I don't have a phone, and I rarely go on Facebook, I had no idea.

But anyways. What do you think about this? It's hard to believe that something like this happened so close to home. This kid has always been goofy and funny and sometimes angsty and complainy, but I don't know how he'll be when he comes back. I mean, he's never going to be the same, and that makes me sad.

funnily enough, I had a family friend who went into a coma after 1/2 hr of anoxia this weekend. they donated his organs and pulled the plug and all. things will never be the same with his mother, I think; she's been a very vibrant person in the community for years.

oh my goodness. i don't even know what to say. i hate when things like this happen. it makes me think of things i'd rather not think of, so much it makes my head hurts. i hate how sad the world is sometimes.
it sucks when you think you know someone and it turns out you were all wrong. as his older brother, he must have looked up to him. i can't imagine how hard this has affected him.
im not very religious, at all really, but i'm going to pray that everything turns out all right for the brother and his family.

Allways live for today without any regrets as you never know what tomorrow might be like . Most importantly enjoy family and friends as much as possible and forget silly arguments on small things cos if its too late to make up with a close person before something happens it will only leave you feeling guilty .

I don't know what to say about this particular case . So many bad things happen everyday in the world and when it happens close to home it just makes us realise that we are part of this realistic world and are not here forever .

Anywy I just wanted to say hi cos I had deleted my blog sometime ago but undeleted it now and this blog and your other one were some of my faves so Im glad to be back and reading again =))
