The “Choking Game” – It’s still happening


t’s the 11th.  Two months from today it will be three years that our son died from the "choking game".    It’s not really the way I want my son remembered, yet, I hear over and over about it, from e-mails being forwarded to me, to new readers just first learning that such a "game" even exists.  On Tuesday my post had a link to Matthew’s memorial page, and I received several very kind and compassionate notes, yet they were from parents who never knew it existed.  This past week we had a customer at our house, and found out that their children that came over attend a Christian high school, were also very aware of the choking game.

This will not be a long post all about it.  Below are recent links regarding it.  Know what your children may already know about.

  1. Loni-
    I just posted a link to this post on my blog. Hoping parents will read your story and talk to their own kids. Thank you for sharing. Praying for you and your family.

  2. My heart goes out. What a beautiful tribute to your son. I too know of someone who lost their 14 year old son the same way you lost yours. I never have met anyone else who had lost a child in this way. I just want to say that I am crying with you. I will give this to the Lord for you & will keep this before Him. My heart is heavy.

    Rejoicing In Him, Patrizia
