  1. There has been a significant increase in the suicide rate of African American Children also, Something rarely or almost never heard of happening among us 50-60 years ago, now quite common This is what happens when we dissolve our common culture, traditional family lifestyles and replace it with weird and unusual cultures, actions and people and call that legal……. Back to the basics, that which is natural , or prepare for further dysfunction within the family and to perish. Man, Woman and Children together in a loving home stems growth, warmth, and security

  2. I don’t know what is happening with our children of today in Ja but when I was their age there was no mention of suicide. Our lives were not a bed of roses. Some of us had to shoulder adult responsibilities while still attending school and parents away at work. Could it be that since our children have been more exposed to the world via the internet they have developed such tendencies like children of the western world do? JA are strong, resilient, and resourceful people. I’m completely baffled. This does not seem like the JA I know. With that been said, we must listen to our children and maintain close supervision as much as possible.

  10. Any man hurt children deserves to die. Children are to be protected at all times because they are innocent and when you taken away their innocencey it lead these children thinking that they are not loved and not wanted, and it lead these outcomes. We as adults need to take care of our little children they need our love, our protection, and our guidance.
