Why did Lee Thompson Young take his own life?

Lee thompson Young
Today we learned that Lee Thompson Young committed suicide. He was only 29 years old. He was a former Disney star and currently a part of an ensemble cast on the the TNT show Rizzoli and Isles. We will never know why, but what this should do is make you look at the people in your own circle of friends or your own family and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Too often we see signs of depression, but we simply write it off as a mood or a phase and it could be something far more serious. We can’t help Young tonight, but perhaps there is someone in your life that you can help.

    There was a comment made by a fellow actor who worked with Lee. He said that Lee was “too sensitive” for this world. I found that to be a very true and real statement. To truly survive in this world. we must be able to let things “roll” off us and move on. There are many as Lee who can’t just let things “roll” off them because they care so deeply…unfortunately, their only peace will come after they leave this world.
