Lee Thompson Young Born: Feb 1, 1984 Died: Aug 19, 2013 It has been a productive full day. Went back to San Ramon today to eat lunch with two of my friends who still work at the large complex. We laughed a lot, talked about old black and white movies, and those twisted plots that many of them had. The only dark cloud today was reading about the suicide of one of my favorite’s from the Disney stables — Lee Thompson Young. I loved his TV show, “Jett Jackson,” as well as other movies he starred in.
With a tragedy such as this one, so many will be left wondering why? Mental illness is a disease that many people hide out of embarrassment, or a misunderstanding about what’s taking place within themselves. Mental illness does not mean someone is crazy either, it just means that things aren’t quite sorting out within the mind. In many cases, medication can stabilize things upstairs.
I’m not sure what was going on in the handsome prince’s mind at the time of the alleged suicide, but I pray that he will find peace on the other side. I thank him for the years of entertainment, for the smile and kind heart that he was.
