    The word 'prestigious' makes me think 'pressure.' I hope not, poor kid.

    Prestigious + Pricy = Pressure.

    I wasn't suggesting that the young man worried about money. Families who send their children to Cranbrook are well educated and wealthy, and their offspring are expected to achieve similar status. The young man probably wasn't worried about money as much as he was about an upcoming grade report or the fact that he wasn't accepted into a prestigious university.

    If disclosed (and I don't think it's any of our business to see), the reported suicide note should explain this teenager's intentions.

    Very sad, even without further details.

    RIP, and peace to his family.

    May he rest in peace.
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    This young man seemed to have everything going for him, was well-liked and respected by peers and adults. So sad. Thoughts and prayers for his family and friends.
