why dont kids in somalia or other 3rd world countries commit suicide ? All these kids that killed themselves were going to school and had food and shelter. This is what happens when social decadence and a faithless society prevails. Add a little materialism and peer pressure too and all of a sudden you have reasons to end your life.

Not even in the Great Depression or Civil war has children targeted themselves..What the hell is going on all of a sudden ?!

This is, of course, a very serious issue. Most importantly for us at Oakton School, there is a family that is still grieving. For our school community, unless you have gone through a suicide occurring in your child's school, you can only imagine the serious repercussions.
Our school is still trying to heal. So must the Tribune repeatedly plaster Aquan's photo on its web site?
In the words of my young child when she saw it this morning (as she glanced at my computer), can't the newspaper let him rest in peace? As I recall, this is the third time that his picture has been used by the Tribune on a story.
Why didn't you interview the School District in Evanston on how it responded to this situation in providing services to our school community and how children have been helped by those services? Many parents would like to know. That's a mental health issue, too.
