Although not autism-related, Jack’s death is very sad. He was so talented and had a great future ahead. Bullying is really horrible and affects some of the most talented kids and adults in the world, including many of us. Much more should be done to prevent bullying! Bullying kills! 😦
Here is another story about a girl who committed suicide. The school had heard of her intentions, but did not notify her parents:
Please take bullying and how we feel seriously! Only because not everybody kills themselves it does not mean self-harm or suicide is not going to happen. Some people can cope less than others. Do not always think of what “you” would do or how “you” would react. You don’t know the whole stories behind severely depressed or suicidal people. Take their suffering seriously.
