Suicide: Let’s talk about it. I know someone who recently had a suicide in their family. As the family started to put the pieces together, they learned that the young man had elaborately planned his demise. This in spite of the fact that his secret was revealed prior to the day of decision and help was offered.
So I have a few questions as it relates to this:
Is suicide ever a viable option for the hopeless? What would you say to someone who told you he/she was contemplating suicide? Would you try to convince them not to go through it? If so what would you say? Would you use bible scriptures or call the authorities?
Have you ever thought about or considered suicide? I am not ashamed to admit that I’ve been there. I have strongly considered it before and planned it as well. I consider it a miracle that I am here today.
Have you ever thought about it or planned it? Will you share?
From what I see, the stories of these kids who have killed themselves because of bullying have been sensationalized. But several folks young and old end their lives daily and we hear nothing of it.
Suicide is real and it’s here in a serious way. So let’s talk about it!
