As someone who talks to and works with youth and the elderly around issues of depression, suicide and death I believe a memorial page is a good thing. There are people who love and miss the individual who killed themselves. I think it is sad not to acknowledge that. Suicide is the Fourth leading cause of death for young people in the world according to WHO. We need to stop avoiding the fact that it happens as frequently as it does and do something about it. You are not celebrating the person taking their life or glorifying it-- Their death is a reminder that there are individuals all around us who need us to reach out...to be kinder...to care.
As for the pictures, I don't think that the baby should be in the picture. This was an accomplishment that the mother did. She should be in the picture alone, after all most moms either never take a picture by them selves again, or they are the one holding the camera so she should enjoy this one and celebrate her school success.View Thread
