A young man who was a year behind me in school committed suicide last night. I learned about it on Facebook this morning and my news feed has been filled with rest in peace statuses all day. That doesn't bother me. What gets me is the statuses from people who made this kid's life a living hell in high school. Now all of them want sympathy because their "friend" took his life. He had a hard life. He didn't know his father, he found his mother when she passed away when he was in elementary school, he was constantly teased in school because he was big, and now the people who teased him are talking about how they were the best of friends. No, you weren't. You were a colossal ass to him and now you probably feel a little guilty for treating another person the way you did. Saying Rest in peace doesn't change what you did.
Does stuff like this bother anyone else?
