I was chatting on AIM last night when my friend said she heard sirens outside her house. I found out later that night that another friend of mine who lived across the street from the first friend had shot himself in his basement. This is really fvcked up. He was gone just like that. I don't know why he did it. His life seemed to be going well. He was the starting QB on the freshman team and he had lots of friends. I just can't believe it. I remember being around him and I could have never fathomed he would take his own life so suddenley like this. I'm just amazed that someone could do something like that. Something must have been really messed up for him to do this. I'd just like ATOT's prayers to be with his family.

RIP Dylan. :(

Edit: I just found out that he used his dad's shotgun to do it after an arguement with his mom. He blew his head off. His mom was the first person to see. Wow this is so fvcked up..

I don't respect his decision to take his own life. That being said it's a shame that he did.

RIP.

Neither do I. And I can't even fathom the reason he did it. NO ONE saw any signs whatsoever. We're all in disbelief.

Most of us that do deal with depression don't show many signs of it to other people. It's not unusual for a person to take their life and not have anyone around them to have the slightest clue as to why.

I don't really know. Or care at this point.

It was so fvcked up. They [his family] were there when it happened. They heard the gunshot, but none of them wanted to go down to see what it was because they knew Dylan was down there and he didn't respond when they called down. His mom was the first to go down and see. Goddamn..

Yeah, he was the type of kid who was in all the sports. He had a great future in front of him. It's just terrible.

Thanks to everyone for the support.

Sorry man. I almost killed myself once, I'm 14, I was sooo close, Just so much pressure and stress, I just wanted to end it all, but I decided not to. And I'm glad now that I didn't. Again I'm sorry :(
