One of my former students just committed suicide.

I taught him in second grade. He loved nature and bicycling. He was married. He joined the navy. He was about to be deployed for the second time. I can't help but feel he is one more of the American military's most common form of casualty. He will be missed. My heart aches for his family and friends.
