ACUTE DEPRESSION LEADS TO 11 YEAR OLD GIRL'S SUICIDE

Again, this will be a very busy day and the timing sucks! I have a tons of things to say about this issue but that will have to wait for later or perhaps, the weekend. For the meantime, this story hit the headlines of the TV networks last night and early this morning.

There's this 11 year old girl who, at age 7, started to chronicle her family's life of poverty. Coming from a family of 9, with a jobless father and a mom who earns, less than $1/day, it is not so difficult to imagine the things that she went through. The situation apparently became so hopeless for her, that she decided to escape by hanging herself.

Having been exposed to these type of stories and having worked with the poor for so long, I still can't help but feel so bad.

My discourse, later or over the weekend. Promise!
