    This was one of the most poignant ABC After School Specials. During the last few years, it seemed like half of the episodes were depressing!

    You do not need to be a great actor to get the message through and I feel that even though the scenario is lacking the actors are good and I think this is a very important message even now in the 21st century. Don't think suicide is an easy thing to hear or feel or face. and for those of you who compare this to gays and rape - why don't you go see in the mirror and get a CT to check if you still have a brain and a heart.
