    So when a friend must go,

    ending all communication forever, for very good reason, one should be supportive and understanding. I'm just mad and hurt. Dammit.

    It's not like I'm surprised,

    but it's not like it didn't affect me. People pretend to care about me, and it truly sickens me when I have to find out this way. If you don't care about me, just tell me. Preferably tell me very soon because, from the way all this is going right now, I'm not gonna be around...

    I went to her funeral today.

    I stayed the entire time for her. She was cremated, so our Lieutenant carried her ashes down for the service. If I would have saw her body in a casket I would have balled my eyes out uncontrollably. I'm still shocked about her death. I even had a dream about talking her out...

    a girl in my class recently commited suicide.

    I know it wasn't my fault but every single day I go to bed weighed down the with guilt that I could have done something to help. i didn't even know she was unhappy and I keep expecting her to walk into school laughing at us for being so stupid. but I know she's gone

    Her Flame Went Out, She Didn't Die.

    I believe seeing death from, the last few minutes before the body gives way, are life-changing for many who witness it. In Hinduism, the body is put on a funeral pyre and it slowly reduces to ash. I find it a very violent way of the last rites taking place, so electric...

    I have been worried about her all day and I just don't know what to think. I haven't a clue. I am trying to stay calm but I know something has changed or happened. I have a horrible feeling building in me. I wish I knew how to feel.
