I was saddened to see this bit of news on my twitter timeline today.
Best known for his role on the Disney Channel show ‘The Famous Jett Jackson‘ and as Detective Barry Frost on TNT’s ‘Rizzoli & Isles’, Lee Thompson Young was found dead this morning of an apparent suicide at the age of twenty-nine.
This goes to show that no matter what level of success a person has achieved or how happy you think a person may be, you just never know what’s really going on behind the scenes.
Suicide is a topic that hits very close to home for me. Therefore, my prayers go out to his family and friends who will no doubt spend many of days to come trying to make sense of it all.
If you have thought about suicide or someone you know has made mention of it, please don’t hesitate when it comes to getting help. Sometimes, all you have to do is talk about it and realize that it’s a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
