Why Suicide ?


A true story

I will never forget the day I received the phone call. My sweet daughter called telling me."Mama Mike is dead." My son in law had committed suicide. It felt as if I had been punched in my stomach,I couldn't breath.

My first thoughts were I have to be with my daughter and five year old grand daughter..Emotions soon overwhelmed me. Sadness, anger, fear consumed me.The question then arose. "Why"

Suicide is a senseless, selfish loss of ones life. .What could cause a person to commit such a despicable act?

When someone commits suicides they not only take their own life ,but greatly effect the lives of the people who love them .Their children are usually the ones who suffer most. Some kids carry the scars a life time, Feelings of quilt, anger, and rejection seem to take root,leaving behavior,and emotional issues leading to the same path as their parent,

People are different. We all have and cope with life's situations in our own way..Most of us deal with life's challenges as they come.

Most people who commit suiside are suffering from Clinical Depression or another mental condition..They see suicide as the only way to escape their pain.
