Since my article – Suicide At Bobst – was published on the Huffington Post, as well as the many comments on the HP itself, I have received numerous emails with comments on the subject of the article.
The following, is one of those emails.
“…I cannot begin to imagine what pain you must be
feeling at this time. One of my other friends from NYU learned of his own
mother’s suicide during the week of his high school graduation. He’s doing a lot
better now emotionally, but it took him several years of therapy before he could
fully move on. And even so, it’s not something one can ever completely overcome…”
I really appreciated what you wrote about John Sexton in your article. NYU’s
penchant for glossing over its student suicide pandemic always disturbed me.
It’s just another facet of how the school disregards its student body. I, for
one, graduated from NYU with a 3.9 G.P.A., and the school did almost nothing to
help me find a job. My current plight doesn’t begin to approach the weight of
yours, but I do–as far as NYU is concerned–fully agree with and support your
God bless you and your family, too. I will keep you in my prayers. Feel free to
contact me at any time–if I can do you a favor, or if you just want to vent.
