Tears are not enough....

Recommended Posts

Whilst I am distraught and saddened by this tragedy, I recommend looking at the Wiki entry for suicide. It is such a complex subject with a long history and different cultural attitudes over many eras that the article tends to tell us more about the enigma of suicide than it provides us with an in-depth understanding. Comprehending how little we understand seems to help us to gain a perspective on a very difficult phenomenon. I was especially interested to read about the various factors that can trigger an attempt. Somehow, I felt a little less likely to submit to those factors having read about them.
