"Did you ever tell him you loved him? I didn't!"
That great quote above is a question that was asked by Cindy Lewis, the daughter of Barbara and Carl Lewis.

Skip Lewis had been having a hard time in school. His grades are slipping and he did below par on his SAT. The most beautiful, popular girl in school just turned him down for a date, and it seems like nothing in his life is going good for him. So he decides that the only way that he can stop his pain is to commit suicide. So Skip gets his car, goes to a large hill just above the ocean, and drives full speed off of the hill without looking back.

His parents are in denial. They all think that it was an accident, and that Skip was a perfectly happy kid. But his friend Ken, and his sister Cindy know that it wasn't an accident. They saw the signs. Skip asking Ken if he were going to kill himself would he tell anyone. Skip giving Cindy his record collection. All things that they just brushed off without thinking.

This was a very good movie. I viewed it in Life Management class when we were studying suicide. The acting was very good, especially from Dana Hill. Her essay at the end of the movie titled `Silence of the Heart'. This was a time when everyone looked at suicide being done by a crazy person, which is not true. Cindy and her family had to go through people talking behind their backs, even at Skip's funeral. It shows you the warning signs of suicide, why it happens, and what we can do to prevent it. I would definitely recommend this movie. It's a TV movie true…but it still has a good message that everyone should see.
