In the miry pit

There was a sombre mood in prison this morning. Yesterday an inmate hanged himself on his 22nd birthday. And he was only serving 4 weeks. What a cruel waste of a life.

The chaplain spoke about the lost sheep and the lost son, and our God who is inclusive in his love.

Nothing else to say really.

Oh dear Liz , how very sad indeed, why does this happen ... I think something must of been wrong before this young man was sent to prison. Cruel waste of life as you say. I also noticed it was on his birthday ..,. I feel for his parents and family too..they will never forget him, I know, but his birthday will a very cruel reminder.
