Update on the suicide incident

For those who read the news in SG may have known about this -- the incident that happened last Wednesday was indeed a suicide.

The saddest part about this whole tragedy is that the person who committed suicide was a 11-year-old boy.

I did not follow the news and i do not know why a kid of age 11 would wanna kill himself. Yes, i've said that even though i do not agree with such action, i do understand why people would make such choice.

However, what i can't figure out is what could possibly be so devastating for a boy as young as 11 years old to even think of ending his own life? He wasn't abused or anything, and i heard that he actually studied very well in school too.

When the incident happened that day, he just returned from school and was even with his friend before he committed suicide. It probably has something to do with the pressure of academic excellence, but then i'm just speculating to find a reasoning for such as young kid to feel that there is no more hope in life and he might as well end it.

I sympathised with his parents. They must be traumatised. It was never easy to lose a loved one, and more so when the loved one is so young and it was death in such manner. My heart goes out to them.

May the soul rest in peace.
