The Suicide Victims of Romeo and Juliet by John Kenwell

What would Juliet say if she could speak from the tomb? What would Romeo rue, or yearn for? The dark finality of suicide ensures that we will never know. But we can speculate.
Teens today still face the problems of jealousy, bullying, violence, and alienation from parents that the two famed, star-crossed lovers experienced. When one lonely teen feels the pain of the unwanted, suicide seems a welcome solution.
