Prayers and condolences to his family. It is heartbreaking to hear that such a young person felt he had no options. If you or anyone you know is thinking of harming yourself or just need someone to talk with, call the Suicide Prevention Hotline 24 hours a day.

Yes, prayers and condolences - also to the driver of the tractor trailer who has to live with being involved in this incident through no fault of his own...

Prayers and condolences to his family. Depression is the most common reason why an individual tends to kill himself. The best way to help the depressed people is to talk to them and share some positive thoughts. Showing them the brighter side of life would somehow divert their minds. Facebook holds a special role in determining the mood of a user. It gives everyone a chance to share his status and thoughts. Through this site, communication between family and friends can be achieved easily. To enhance facebook's services, an additional feature has been added. Now, Facebook is offering friends and family of people in crisis a way to get their friends' help, directly on the site. Read more: Web Link
