Not a day goes by that we don't think of Jess since the incedent at the tracks. Each day we seem to miss her moer. Our family has a history of mental illness. We can still never imagine the pain that Jessica felt even if we try. It is time to try to heal and accept that she is in a better place and no longer suffering. It is also time to face and try to conquer the terrible demons of the illness and the everpresent topic of teen suicide. No one chooses for no reason to just go out one day and end thier existence on this earth. Only a monster with the name "Bipolar" could grab ahold of one and just not let go. Everyone needs to be awareof the desperation an individual feels with this disease. People need to be aware and stop denying and blame someone or something else for Jessica's means to the end og her suffering. The other something elses are just a by-product of what anyone could do out of desperation to just feel normal and good like everyone else. Take it from those of us that suffer this disease to of all differnt degrees of some level. We live it everyday, one day at a time and we pray we can get through another day. For the sake of Jess, love,embrace and support all, we are all in this lives on and the lives that have touched us...Rest in peace with the angels Jessica.
