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.
