    One of my kids that I taught 8 years ago killed himself today. He was such a sweet soul. He was a special needs student, but he always had a huge smile on his face. He wore jeans and boots every single day and gave the best hugs. His family was...strange. When I taught him his sister almost drowned while they were fishing. She just decided to jump out of the boat to try swimming to shore. He was usually dirty and I think he only showered once or twice a week. That smile, though. I remember it, and the hugs. One of my other kids said he had been bullied really badly in high school. It just breaks my heart.

    Thanks for the prayers, y'all. It's a lot for the kids to deal with. It's a small school with around 60 kids per grade level. They've been together since kindergarten.

    Christy, I will keep this family and student body in my prayers. The night before school closed for Christmas in my hometown, three seniors went hunting. The three students separated, two and one. The one who was alone thought he saw a wild hog and shot the other two boys, killing one of them. The other one had to surgery, but survived.
