Thank you for your comment ...

I could only watch the first video you placed here; the other two sadly are copyright-blocked in Germany where I live.

What happened to Jacob and Lisa was a massive tragedy ... One that will never be fully understood, but which left their families and so many friends grieving about two young lives lost.

I did some research, and, among others, found the Facebook page that was put up in their memory
( http://www.facebook.com/pages/RIP-Lisa-Grijalva-Jacob-Campbell/110394779025193?sk=wall ).

Dear commentator, I don't know whether you knew Jacob and Lisa in real life, or whether you heard of their tragic passing online or elsewhere. Anyhow, I know and feel that what happened hit you just as hard as it hit me right now, to learn about what happened.

Jacob and Lisa are being missed dearly, they will always be remembered, and they will be loved forever.

It is so hard to say that ... Even if someone did know, it might have been impossible to prevent anything then, or to help ...

ok just wondered if you ever talked about it in your videos. just thinking someone could of helped him who may of talked with friends or someone else online.

won't talk about it no more

Truedantalion said...

It's hard for me, actually, to make a video when I am at a loss for words ... And the case of Jacob and Lisa most certainly leaves me speechless, and bare of any thoughts that might help along in any ways, let alone explain something.

It is tough, though, as the thoughts amd questions you have are also mine.

just don;t think thins get better seem getting worser, as more have taken there lives.

what did you think of jacob?


sorry just wanted to know

Truedantalion said...

What you ask (why some just make it through, and others don't) is something I don't know a real answer to. I feel that making any predictions there is actually next to impossible, because the heart and the soul are nothing that can really be pressed into scales and labels.

I think: Knowing that others care for you can help. Seeing and feeling that they are there when you need them surely can help, too. Receiving some comfort and compassion by them, and reassuring, by things they say and do, and maybe without even intending to be of direct help (but by just being what they are), can be a big positive factor, too.

Gee, it is hard to express these things in words!

Videos like the one made by Jacob surely are inspiring, and can have positive influence, too. No general rule here, but the option is there, no doubt. Thanks so much for bringing this video to my attention - I shared it on Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

Thanks also for the other two links.

By the way: What you said that things obviously don't get better but worse ... I think that the basics, the structures in our society, indeed ARE getting partially better, because there's much more awareness now, much more media coverage and public discussion. And there are initiatives like The Trevor Project and also the website you sent me the link to in your comment, and others more, too ...

I guess this is an improvement that may be of help in the long run.

Here's to hope - always!

if things are getting better, kids still taking there lives :( hopefully one day will stop, sorry for asking here

have a happy new year,

sure i am getting on nerves

iremembera said...

one things was wondering if you want to answer ny thoughts on jacob c or anything you might feel like saying?
any thoughts on ones who take there life?
sorry forgot to ask in last comment

Truedantalion said...

If people would be getting on my nerves woth writing comments, I would not allow writing comments in the first place :-)!

So don't you worry about a thing. I am, on the contrary, happy about comments, and love reading and answering to them - so whatever you feel like writing, please do - and there is no limit to the number of comments, either :-)!

Truedantalion said...

A Happy New Year to you, too!

iremembera said...

thanks, guess i confused you was talking about in memory of Jacob Campbell that is what i was asking about, if it's to hard for you to talk about. makes me cry.

Truedantalion said...

Yes, there are several Jacobs out there, so sometimes it's a bit tricky to keep on track: Jacob Campbell, "Jacob's Hall", the Jacob from the "My Story" video - and me, I know another Jacob, still, who is very dear to me ...

Truedantalion said...

The statement "It gets better", which has become a regular standard (by the organization of that name and the myriad of videos made for that site and YouTube channel) is correct for everyone who "made it" through their hard times somehow, who have become older and can look back now from a situation where they actually have better things going on in their lives, and e.g. the memory of being bullied every day at school is a memory from years ago.

So, on the one hand, they speak the truth, of course, and offer a hopeful perspective for kids / teens / young adults who are at a point in their lives where they despair.

But this may even backfire, if that kid who thinks about ending their life because they just can't take it anymore is (and will be!) in their terrible situation all alone, and can't find help and support ... maybe even is to weary and beat down to even consider searching for it.

So these words from a better future have limited worth, in my opinion, if they only convey the message "You need to be stronger and sit it out, because one day ... whenever that may be ... it will get better ... probably. At least it did for me, so there!"

Ever so often, kids who think about ending their lives (for example because they are bullied every day, but also for other reasons), already go to their limits every day! There IS no extra strength any more that they could invest ... So demanding of them to "be strong" can be kinda like a slap in the face, even though it's not intended that way.

What we need to do, in video statements as well as in personal talks with someone who needs help, is point the ways to possibilities of getting help - like the website link to "My Broken Place" you sent, and others more.

What I think we may NOT do, is saying "I promise" - about the "It gets better" part. Because we can't. It's no 100% deal. We can only try to lay out the way in the best way possible. But there will never be a guarantee, and if we promise one, we become liars in the very moment when a kid who, after listening to us, tries even harder to get through in school, and be positive - and yet gets beat up at school every single day still. One day, they will ask: "WHEN will it get better? I see nothing happening there, even though I do what you say and try so hard... Your promise is worth nothing!"

If we remember Jamey Rodemeyer ... In his video, he also made that promise, and it was heartfelt and honest. Yet, we know what happened - he made his video in May, and in October, life had become so hard for him again that his own promise failed him.

And this happened NOT because he had been stupid, or blind!. It was because even though he was motivated to the max to make it, his tormentors were motivated just as well to make his life hell every day. No one cared about that, no one brought help there, and made the bullies' ways stop. Jamey told others about it, but no one listened, as he said himself. And this meant that Jamey still had to go through the abuse every day, I guess, that had made his life so miserable. It was constantly hurting him and using up his extra power bit by bit.

We need to offer more than the promise that it will get better, if the person in their misery becomes willing to "sit it out" and wait until the storm will end.

We need to offer ways of help, that this person can try out, and if it's possible for us, we need to offer to be there personally and be of assistance with that, if we can.

very good points. it's sad never know how it will turn out which is discouraging, it happened in October as well for Jacob. ): he is gone.
one thing i keep asking is why,

never forget

Truedantalion said...

Some questions, sadly, will remain unanswered forever. It's like wanting to know what lies behind the horizon ... we will not find out until we get there.

And what you say about discouraging factor of not knowing if what we can offer will actually be of help ... I see what you mean, and, yes, it's hard.

But then, to me, there is always the opposite possibility in focus, too - that something I can say or offer WILL be of help in some way. And this encouraging element is motivation enough for me to keep my eyes and ears open, and my heart, in order to be there and listen if need be, and see what I can possibly do.
