I learned of a young man’s death today. I say young even though I think he was older than me. I don’t know how he died but my senses (and the suddeness) tell me it might have been at his own hand.

Then someone commented on my Facebook about suicide being the best option for them.

Suicide is never an option. I’ve been in dark places before and it crossed my mind, but ultimately those dark days passed and life became bearable and even full of goodness. Suicide is a permanent and irreversible solution to temporary and fixable problems. If you are considering it, get help. Despite what you think, people do care about you. Don’t be selfish and take away someone they love.
