  1. He did not take his own life purposely. He loved his life and was just doing a immature thing by running on the tracks, he was only 14. I’m sick of everyone’s heartlessness saying my brother tried to take his own life.

  2. It is sad that an ignorant idiot writes these kinds of things for attention. Check yourself, you don’t know your head from your arse.
