Former "Bachelor" Jake Pavelka cried three days after learning of the suicide of his former love Gia Allemand. And now he can't get her out of his thoughts, anguished that someone so special would take her own life, according to an MSN TV report dated Sept. 11.
Pavelka chose not to give Gia his rose during his time on the "Bachelor" show, but he says the two still remained close friends despite her romantic move forward with Ryan Anderson. Yet now that the young suicide victim is gone, her former admirer is bemoaning how there was no one else like her, and that she understood him like no one else ever has. And he wants her back.
Christian rock group Third Day has a song that talks about suicide, detailing one man's anguish over events in his life after losing his job in 2009, so he contemplates taking his own life. The verses begin with a woman crying, who starts asking God above for a miracle, to bring her husband back home and back to the life they used to have together.
Unbeknownst to the crying wife, her husband is driving down into the woods to "end it all." But a song comes on the radio that stops him, and it is the turning point for him. In the music video, singer Mac Powell talks about asking the "Lord above, I need a miracle." And how God ends up answering that cry, restoring this family and saving this man from taking his own life.
Jake Pavelka wishes Gia Allemand had not taken her own life. And he admits he will be thinking about the fact that she did for many years to come, tormented already each day since she did. If you think someone you know is contemplating suicide, get them to listen to Third Day's "I Need a Miracle" song and watch the video shown above. It can open the door to a discussion they might not otherwise have with you. And it just might save their life.
