Each note bears a different message, helping to remind each student that they are important, valued, and loved.
At least one teacher at the school addressed the idea of “copycat suicide,” in which one death may spark another troubled or depressed person to take their own life as well. These notes are intended as a measure to boost morale and love at the school, whose slogan is “Men for others.”
Notes such as “To me, you are perfect (yes you!)” and “Don’t forget to love yourself!” are among the hundreds hanging on lockers.
Rev. Christopher J. Devron, SJ, the school president, released this message regarding the recent deaths.
The message was also posted on the school’s website.
Please SHARE the news of the school’s recent tragedy, and more importantly, the message of resilience and love that the other students have been showing in the days since.
