Last spring, a student at the High School for Math, Science and Engineering at City College in Manhattan died by suicide. Five months later, a group of sophomores, who asked to stay anonymous, said the tragedy doesn't come up much.
Eight years ago, Hannah Moch lost her friend to suicide.
Malaya Holloway was 13. She and Moch were classmates at a middle school in Lower Manhattan. Moch called her "really funny, and really beautiful." The pair would watch movies together and take goofy pictures on the computer with other friends. But after Malaya's death, Moch said students and school staff struggled with how to remember her friend.
