Stories like this one from Time Magazine trouble me.
Not just because someone committed suicide over the actions of others,
but because no one seems to do anything about it.

What would have happened had this child realized his value in Christ?
What would have happened had a Christian friend at his school stood up for Him?
What would have happened had someone loved the bullies enough to tackle their issue head on?
Situations like this make me wonder….

Why do we so often do absolutely nothing relevant to these situations?
Are we really teaching people to live out their faith in their world?
Just some questions….
