My heartfelt sympathies to his family. I wish all of us could get together and so something to identify and work with kids that are depressed. Our society places too much importance on money and achievement and not enough on human relationships. I'm going to go home and hug my kids..

My deepest condolences to the parents, though there is really nothing to be said or done to ease the pain.

This is happening far too much in our area.

Time for some self-examination and rethinking of values and goals.

This news is very sad, and upsetting. My sincere condolences to everyone knew, loved, and cared for this boy—his family, friends, classmates, teachers, neighbors—and to the train driver, and other people charged with caring for our young. This news is difficult and very sad.
