    Suicide invariably means one thing, and one thing only; loss of hope.

    My father killed himself when he was already dying. Down to 3% kidney function with congestive heart failure. I'm sure he wanted to avoid the current American way of death which is to die slowly in a hospital connected to tubes and wires and loaded with drugs. We worry far too much about prolonging life instead or prolonging quality of life. I hope I have the guts to follow his example in similar circumstances.

    On the other hand, why do so many people with so much going for them commit suicide?
