I Knew it would happen...just a matter of time...a webcam suicide
For our entertainment??
It came to me at midnite...it will happen
Two years ago I woke from a deep sleep......my laptop was turned off by my bed but I saw an outline of a young man and he was telling of how he was going to commit suicide on webcam for the worlds entertainment. I was terribly upset and I ask my eldest daughter to please wake up and sit with me.
Haley of course ask me if it was just a dream....I sadly replied that I was certain it was a sign for me to help him in some way. We both were perplexed to as how I could reach this young man. I only saw an outline of his face. We chattered through the nite and came up with that since the laptop was the way it appeared to me...maybe just maybe that was within the answer of how to find this lost and lonely soul.
For 2 years I joined chat rooms and signed up on cyber sites to meet new friends in hopes of finding this guy. WOW I spoke with many that had thought about or attempted suicide. None of them however mentioned sharing it over webcam. Although I did not give up my efforts...and still I reach out through the internet......praying that God will guide me or them to talk to me first before such an act.
Two years later the dreaded act of suicide over webcam happened. My heart sunk to a new and deep low as I read on the internet news. The 19 year old took an overdose of pills. His family stated that he was doing great in colllege and a very popular guy. They had no idea that he was feeling low or upset in the least. He was always happy and loved to help his friends and family!
Now as I researched this subject matter, It was astonishing to see the others that have joined in this bizarre and twisted idea of making entertainment out of their personal pain!
What has our society created or help to foster?? When youth or a very confused mind deems that at the very least their death would be entertainment!! I read the blogs today of many egging the suicide on........days before it happened.
There has been many articles written about how our society is too harsh about weight, looks, economic status ect. and maybe that is/was the start of demeaning others. However This a new all time low! Parents, teachers, government officials should take a much firmer stand on what our youth is doing, seeing and yes......feeling! If they are our future than we should invest our love, heart and time into making all feel good about ones self!
We are Americans!! They are our future....at least this is what I always heard! Teachers are afraid to scold children that misbehave....no doubt afraid of the parents reaction! As those little bad apples grow into older students , they bully, demean and fight! For sure they are unhappy themselves but to allow the child to hurt others is where all this starts!
There has always been ill behaved children in school and the day we took out any real reprecussions.......we allowed disrespect to teachers, community and ofcourse our governent...that took away order in the school in the first place.
Sure it all starts at home but as we all know there are parents out there that should have never had children . If they do not learn about God, respect, compassion and truth divine at there humble abode....well it is up to the rest of us to teach them.
Prayer is needed at school, God is universal!! Let them call God whatever name they choose! Starting In grade school there should be a punishment for acting out! Parents should be pleased to have this back! If they do not.......it is fair to say they are part of our society's problem!
I have 2 teen daughters and they both know I support them and believe in them, however they also are aware if they do the crime ...they will do the time......
In closing I do want to add that I am still proud to be an American.....just not as proud as I use to be. When "we the people" will remember that we are still the people and have to stand up for our and our childrens rights.........to carry on the American hope and dreams of freedom and a future for all of us!
in humble regards
