Welcome to my life.
I go to a school where the arts are embraced and for at least two periods a day, kids get to do what they love. You walk in and you just feel a great vibe. This week it was the opposite; kids crying in the halls, the emotionally exhausted looks on their faces. This is because on Tuesday night, a sophomore vocal major committed suicide. I didn't know her, but I have friends and teachers that knew her very well, and they're devastated. The school has brought in grief councilors, but i've seen comforting go on that they could never do. Specifically the girl's chorus that she was in. I knew they were close, but this week I've seen them push through this like a family; crying together and constantly hugging each other. She was in my locker section, and I saw someone have a box of tissues taped to their locker with a note that just said "Blessings.". I think by 8th period, all the tissues were gone. Who ever did that set the trend of going the extra mile of being supportive, and now at least five lockers have them, one with a cup of Q-tips with a note that says "in case your make-up runs". I have never seen such support from so many different people.
I don't know what was going on in her life or why she took her own, but I sure do know how many people are grieving over her loss. I wish she would've known how much people loved her.
Rest in peace.
