    I know its probably use my friend Laurens name on this bc she set up the phone but anyways my name is Torey and I've also be the same guy as you with a 9mm in my hand upto my head and I actually pulled the trigger I did it twice and just so happened neither one of the rounds fired every other one in the mag did except for those two but i didn't find that out until several days or few weeks later but when the second one didn't fire I just took it as a sign it wasn't meant to be then but unlike you my life hasn't done anything but seem to get worse it went up for a short period but then it started going down pretty fast and it's still heading down hill..... And honestly I'm wish pretty much every single day that it's my last or that I don't wake up the next morning I really wish that one of them had fired or that I didn't make it through totaling a car here while back or totaling a ninja that I had and walked away literally with some scraps only one that was kinda bad which is crazy considering I was wearing a sleeveless shirt and basketball short but some how I got up and walked away I did have a concussion tho... But I can't figure out why I'm still here for anything. Feels like someone is using me or keeping me here as a joke just to watch me suffer honestly..... I keep trying to hope it will change and get better but hasn't yet no matter what I do or how hard I try if I'm going to be stuck here but IDK if it ever will.....

    A friend lost his son in a similar way. They had a disagreement one afternoon and he took his life later that night. He was former military with a tour in Afghanistan, but he was a troubled young man that hid his despair quite well. You never know, but afterward you see all the signs were there. We try to come together on every anniversary at his gravestone to help his dad cope as best we can.

    I've been in the same situation as the 18 year old girl in this song. Well not the same age, but pretty close. I had my 1st baby at the age of 21 (1997) & I was so scared when I found out that I was pregnant. I was a single mom till I met my boyfriend, Kevin in 2005. I loved the way Kevin accepted my daughter, Joy into his life. Kevin & I have now been married for 10 years. But, my mom & dad helped me all through out Joy's life, they helped with her schooling, buying clothes, toys, shoes & everything she needed. I was not working when Joy was born, so thanks to my parents for helping out with all her needs...

    You know that would have been nice but instead my sister tosses him out the window while I'm on the way to the hospital to have my eldest and then she keeps trying to blame me for what she did. Ironically that happened to me and if it wasn't for my grandmother & 2 aunts I'd be dead in a box. Still got harassed while I was put in the NICU with my youngest struggling for his life and still harassing me to this day. I have cancer and they wouldn't even let me get life saving surgery due to their illegal testing.

    I relate to the 1st part of this song soo much. My wife left me 6 months before and I took soo many pills that when the cops showed up I was ice cold and barely holding on. I got sent to the hospital for 3 days and when I got out I found a new woman and its was amazing bc I saw a life with her and I was never happier. On friday me and the new woman broke up after almost 3yrs of dating and planning a wedding bc we had an argument. Ive put a gun to my head and pulled the trigger and it didnt go off. I sold the gun a few weels after. She eventually came back. But im sitring here now contemplating going to buy a new gun and ending everything. She was what I always wanted. She doesnt understand what its like to be in the Marines and what we deal with when we get back

    How can there really be any dislikes on this video? Such great and positive messages. There just has to be those people I guess. Even in the comments people speaking up for veterans and those being offended that others aren't mentioned. Shut the fuck up! They're talking about why the song is relevant to their life. They're not saying the others are any less important. Songs like this are meant to bring us together as a unit made up of different colors, sizes and shapes. God bless all of you, even if I get mad at y'all, still got mad love for every one of you. Even the couple who are just dead focused on having something stuck up their asses and are actually going to have something bad to say about this comment

    Brothers and sisters; God has a plan for each and everyone of us. Yes, perhaps that's a bit of a cliche but it's the truth. I served in Afghanistan for a year so I've been at the bottom of the valley, and I understand the feeling of complete despair. I also work in a psych hospital (civilian) and I see and feel the affects of suicide everyday: it's a terrible thing to do to those left behind. Please call or talk to someone before it ever gets to that point. Heck, reply to me here and we can exchange contact information...........
