real lives  
Just this week, a girl on LJ whom many of you knew or have known, committed suicide.
She used to be on my friends list, a few years ago; in fact, I was rather sad when she took me off her friends list because I enjoyed reading her entries and we had exchanged comments the months previous, although we didn't really know each other well.

I am really sad for those of you who knew Amy and have been affected by her death. I think this reminds us that even though LJ is an online entity, the people behind the words are not. They are real, we all are. We might not ever see some of these people, but they still touch us and move us, and we remember them, long after we last conversed.

I don't really know what else to say. I feel so sad for a girl I used to know who felt she had nowhere else to turn, who believed there was nothing worth living for anymore. And I feel so terribly sad for the people who are left to pick up the pieces and remember her the way she used to be.

Amy? She isn't from the mail world is she?
It's too sad for words, literally.

i'm really sorry to hear this, jade. whether it's somebody you know well, know of, or don't know at all, suicide is one of the most heartbreaking things to have to process. because it isn't action based in reality, and because nobody will ever have the chance to prove that to her.

i am sorry to hear you have lost someone whose life you enjoyed sharing, however adjacently. i am sorry to hear the world has lost someone who cared about anything.

I'm so sorry sweetie. I'm around if you need to chat (not too much longer though, it's getting late..)

I'm very sorry to hear about this, echoing the sentiments above, if you need a fresh ear and shoulder, I'll be happy to provide one.

I really don't know what to say.. I was friends with Amy for awhile, but she ended up defriending me out of the blue and that was that. I was just thinking about her last week. Wondering how she was doing and whatnot. :\

I agree with what you're saying though. :) *hugs Jadebee*
