there is this 14 year old girl that used to go to my Church.  I'm afraid she needs some sort of help.  I feel bad now, but once she came back to Church, she asked me out.  I declined.  we are still friends and everything.  well, about 3 weeks ago her older brother committed suicide.  she wants to live with her dad and her mom won't let her.  now, on her facebook status, she says "I want to die again." 

please pray for her!  I will talk to my priest about it, perhapse he can pay her a visit sometime and talk.

Prayers for Annie, that she be comforted in the pain that she feels in the loss of her brother, that her family be suppportive and caring of her in this critical time of her life, that she reach out for spiritual and psychological help, and that she be protected from the depression that is gripping her.

Prayers also for her friend and our brother, Trevor, who bothers to care about her well-being in a time when so many are unwilling to look beyond their own needs.

I'm afraid for her.  I'm printing this out and bringing it to my priest.

I'll just go ahead and copy and paste it here.

her original post:

i take jeremiahs hat and i finaly talk to him and not ignor him and i wouldnt geve hat back till i got something and kaylee yas yelling at me to give his hat back sso i threw it and yelled that i can never be myself and ran off and hid where no one would find me till lunch was over...i no like life here and i wanna die agn

I respond:

Annie, you should talk to someone about "wanting to die". death is NEVER the answer. perhapse you could talk to a teacher a school? or you could ring Father Barnabas, I'm sure he'd be happy to talk to you. also, speak to your mom about your feelings, she is your mom and LOVES you, no matter what!

she says:

if i tell teacher theyll send me to counsler and i wont talk to a counsler or thearapist and father B will call my ma and i cant let my ma know cuza what happen to my brother and if she found out what ive done and what i think about shell s...end me to girls ranch for suicidal girls i know bout it cuz my brother was sent to a boys ranch and if i go i wont cooperate i dont like ppl like that i wont talk i only talk to my closest friends about this stuff only one person knows everything bout me and my life and that golda cuz she can be trusted and shell never leave me and i cant take this world the people im with and the life i live i want out i want out i dont want to wait 2 years for my ma to get better and then me go live with my dad i want out i want to be free from this depression

I say:
Annie, please believe me when I say you and your family are in my prayers. I know that this is a terribly hard time for you, but you MUST speak to someone about this. things can be done to help you out with this. changing these feelings is not all on you, if you only seek some help.

she says:
i can only talk to friends about my fellings

I say:
and, who is a better friend then Father Barnabas? he was your spiritual father, he knows you so well (you spilled your gutts to him in confession). He would understand, and help.

she says:
he will tell my mom i cant let him do that si i cant tell him


I'm now at a loss for words.  she will just shoot down my suggestions.  LORD, HAVE MERCY!

Trevor, I can't see her "Wall", but, I found her through your page.  Her avatar is cause for concern.

Do you know her parents?  Can you call them or your priest?

Don't wait until Sunday to notify someone.  Sunday is a long way away.

I've given copies of this conversation with Annie to my priest and her godmother.  hopefully God's will shall be done, and she will be delivered from depression!

I just wantd to update you all.  this girl's mother just had a heart attack but she's getting better.

sadly, on her facebook, Annie seems to be getting into the Occult.    I was into that for a while before I started going to Church, and it really messed me up spiritually. 

she needs our prayers!
