Anatomy of a breakdown…

Today I witnessed something that I do not want to see again, ever.

 I saw someone have a nervous breakdown right in front of me.  What made it worse was the fact that it was one of my students. (See previous post about the long rambling email…).
Times are tough in Indonesia, and apparently even the brighest minds can snap. How sad. A myriad of emotions are running through me right now. To see someone who was full of life become an empty shell of himself just about killed me. 

 I hope that he is safe and that Allah protects him and brings him home to his mother & family.

Sigh.
