    1. It is not anger. Please read up on Haka. It is maori tradition.

  2. I was there.. I was there at the hospital when he passed. He was one of my best friends and I miss him every day. I am out of camera shot in the video as i did not know the Haka they were performing though I wish i did. We talked the night before he attempted suicide. I wish he told me what he was feeling. If i go through my life only to have one regret it would be that I was not there for him when he needed me and my mates the most... Fly high brother.

    1. I am so sorry for the loss of your friend, Anon. I lost my best friend at around the same age, and I know the pain that this causes. Depression is a terrible disease that is unpredictable. It lies to you. It tells you that people don't care about you; it tells you that they would be better off without you; it tells you that you have nothing to life for. Please understand that and know that your friend was not in his right mind when he took his life. You cannot change the past, but you can help yourself and others in the future. If you need help, ask for it. If you know a friend that needs help, tell them that there is no weakness in seeking assistance. I wish you health and happiness.
