World Suicide Prevention Day
Today is "World Suicide Prevention Day". This day is celebrated every year to help promote action against suicide.
If you have a friend, or even classmate (i'm sure some of you are in college) that you believe may be suicidal, then you should try and talk to them and hopefully they will be willing to allow you to help them/seek help for them.
Those with children, when your children reach a certain age you should have a serious talk with them about suicide. Let them know that you're there for them, and death is not the answer. Trust me, often times parents think they know their children inside and out..up until it's too late. Communicate, and if you have reason to suspect depression or suicidal thoughts/actions, don't wait to be approached by your children, approach them first.
So many people sit around, not knowing how to ask for help, not knowing how to break the cycle of depression and wanting to end their own life. Often times, all they need is a friend or someone who can help them. We live in a pretty mean, cruel world...Problems at home, problems with spouses, abuse, and plenty of sources of on-going pain. Sometimes a person in their corner can help them break the cycle.
And please don't forget your virtual friends...they are just as capable of being suicidal, probably more-so. There are plenty of suicidal people on the net.
Pay attention. Try and not be blind to someone's pain. ~
