Over here if even one suicide happened in a school, firstly the whole school would face massive criticsm, get inspected, get lots of stick. And the fact that seven suicides have happened there, a school in the UK would be closed down quicker then you could say suicide if it got eve past two suicides.

    Because obviously saying that every school in America tolerates sucide is a massive generalization and is wrong, but lots do, quite more than UK. I just want to know why? Is it cos schools work differently there, or too many population to care about or something?
    I think it has a lot to do with kids not realizing that there's more to life than what is happening at that moment. They get all depressed because their girlfriend dumped them or something, and then in true teenager fashoin, they fail to realize that it isn't the end of the world, that it is possible to move on, especially over something as (in retrospect & IMO) trivial as high school romances. It may not be the best word, but the word that describes it most accurately is ignorance. And as you know, we Americans are experts at being ignorant. :P

    Urghh... I got the worst feeling when I read the word "dead".

    The least these depressed high school kids should do is wait 'till they're out of high school. There's more to life than being a teenager.

    When in doubt, refer the prompt to the prompt. You're good at writing papers? Or perhaps at boasting? Or making things up--well, I've repeated myself again, for a third time.

    @Insanish Danish: We're a small town, but a very delicate and depressed one.

    They enjoy your company. So in a way, by offering to give you a ride and pay for the ticket, they are spending their money on something that benefits them.

    You definitely should. If they offered it to you, it's because they want you to go with them.

    I'd say you should. I share your beliefs to a degree, but I always feel like a hypocrite when I expend all my energy to providing my friends with food and drinks, homecooked or bought, whenever they visit.

    If they make an offer, I'd say you should take it. After all, I was under the impression that friends will go to great lengths to ensure that they can all have a great time together.
