I saw a link to this on Facebook. One of my former teachers from Gunn had posted it. I was home this summer when these tragedies started to roll in and I was away at college for the latest one. I appreciate the effort of this site and I think it’s very cute. But isn’t it clear that these people were more than just sad or stressed about school. Clearly there was more going on here. Undiagnosed depression maybe? Afraid to get help for fear of being labeled or carrying a stigma? Why do none of the articles I read seem to say anything about this? Everyone seems to just feel that Gunn puts too much pressure on kids or that they had a bad day and this was their solution. I’m not saying I have an answer, I just feel like we need to think broader and deeper. There is more going on than we can see. HMGGMH because despite all the tragedy everyone is thinking of ways to brighten others lives.
