RE: Too many suicides and attempts

While I realize that this forum is intended to spout your own point of view to a community, Kristenia Johnson's letter is a typical one-sided point of view.

Mykayla Martin knows the children who recently died or committed suicide. She currently attends Kayhi and understands the problems facing teenagers much better than Kristenia Johnson does. Ms. Johnson states "We cannot know what was goes on in the lives and minds of those that commit suicide, and therefore we cannot judge". Maybe you should remember that before you criticize Mykayla for being brave enough to submit a letter that is obviously from a person who is living it this very day!
