this is something you dont hear people talk often about..
you read about in a paper or see it on the news now and then...
i have never experienced it my self.....
but my sister has.....her best friend did suicide and it was my sister that found her....hanging down from a tree.
she did take her own life after a fight for her kids...that she lost....it was the main reason....

courage.......no...
cowarsness...no
when people dont see another solution ....no lights in their life....nothing worth fighting for anymore.....
life is just to hard to go true.............
in one way i think it is selfish........but then again i know life is hard..very hard for some.......

but what about the people they leave behinde........
for my sister it was so hard.....she got a break down.......she felt it was her fault....she was with her 10 min befor.....what should or could she do diffrent to make her friend come back............all the questions................why ???

suicide is not a good solution..................not for you self or for the family or friends that you leave behind......................seek help insted!!!!

They tell us that suicide is the greatest piece of cowardice... that suicide is wrong; when it is quite obvious that there is nothing in the world to which every man has a more unassailable title than to his own life and person.
