"My family and I are devastated and in deep shock by the tragic loss of our dear Michael and ask that everyone respect our privacy during this difficult time,” Michael’s heartbroken mom Marie said in a brief statement issued Saturday.
“Please pray for my sister and her family,” Donny Osmond added in a phone interview with ET. Donny and Marie’s Las Vegas show has been cancelled tonight.
So sad. My heart goes out to the family.

But too often teenagers close up into themselves until they do something drastic, like this.


Today's pressures in life are not easy to cope with for us adults, let alone for young teenagers. All we can do is be there for them but it is not always enough. Losing a child is hard enough but when your child takes his own life it must be so much worse !!

It does seem with each passing generation it gets more and more difficult to be a teenager. Pile that on top of the complexities of modern living -- societal pressures, broken families, medicines designed to help that really hurt, mental illnesses, and labels, labels, labels...man, it's rough.

In watching my teenagers grapple with it all I have to hold my judgment of them. It is not the same world I grew up in. And having been witness to so many suicides in my own neighborhood these past ten years, my heart especially goes out to anyone dealing with it.
