Suicide

2018-11-21 06:00

I AM saddened by the sudden spate of suicides.

Why end your life when your future lies ahead?

Why must parents go through the pain of burying their young children?

If bullying is the reason, then death is a victory for the bully. If a broken heart is the reason, then dying for someone who doesn’t love you would be in vain.

If failure at school is the reason, then what are supplementary exams for? If unemployment is the reason, no monetary value can buy back your life.

Suicide is a “no thank you” to your family and friends. Suicide is the coward’s way out. Please don’t do it. Speak up.

Seek help.
