My dear sweet Nate, where do I start. Well, this summer was supposed to be a good one, I just graduated, so Nate, Jerod and I were supposed to take a road trip to Seattle, no parents, just us, three 18 yr olds. We've all been friends for 3 years, nate and jerod met in 9th grade, then i came along, Im still Jerods girl, nate was really cool, he always accepted me, he made fun of me a lot, but I made fun of him too. We always had fun, even if we were'nt exactly sober all of the time. Nate was loved by all who knew him. Nate why Nate? he was going with a girl, she is really cool. we still hang out with her, Nate was a little depressed (He had been quite sober for a while) so his parents took him to the doctor to get Prozac. PROZAC IS NOT ALWAYS THE ANSWER!!!!! when someone doesn't trully need prozac, it can cause some serious damage.Well, the aeriuos damage has now been done, my friend nate is dead. he was really suicidal all of the sudden, he walked about 8 miles down a busy highway, he walked in the middle, hoping that someone would run him over. When he got into the middle of town he called his girl, he told her what he had done. She immediatly called the police and told them what was going on, they said that they would investigate. His girl got there and asked the cops if they could take him to the hospital, or put him into custodt so that he couldnt hurt himself. The cops said that Nate had broken no laws, and didnt have any evidence of past attempts. Keep in mind that the cops are supposed to help, not hurt. Nate always wore long sleeves, if the cops would have told him to lift his shirt they would have found Nate's previous damage to himself. If they would have searched him for weapons, they would have found a bag of marijuana in his pocket, that would have given them a reason to take him into custody. His Girl took him home and told his parents what had happened, his parents made him promise that he would not kill himself that night, then they told him to take his prozac and go to bed, it would all be better in the morning. Nate woke up the next morning, his last morning that he would ever have. Nates parents went to work as usual they left lots of guns and lots of ammo and lots of liqour as usual, Nate called his girl to see if she was awake, he woke her from her sleep, he told her to tell Jerod that he was sorry for being dumb the last couple of days, then he told her to call him when she woke up, Nate drank all of the liqour in the house, then he found a gun, a loaded gun, he shot himself in the stoumach and then in the head. seeing my best friends all crying, and Nates body in the casket was so traumatic for me I will never ever forget it. The good pictures of Nate stand in my mind, everytime that I think of all of the good times we had, i end up seeing the picture of him in a casket. Nate, why Nate?
