Good morning faithful backers of "CTB". By now I'm sure you all have heard the news of NFL linebacker Junior Seau's suicide. There are other's that won't make the news that have decided the same fate for themselves (5 I've heard of last month in Maryland).
I wanted to get your opinion on why suicide is seen as the only option these people can turn to. I wonder what value life has on people. Is it a mental illness for some? Are circumstances that bad that there is no other option? What is the reality for people who have commited suicide?
If suicide is a problem, then it can be solved...right?
I think people need HOPE. They need some sort of purpose in their life. A reason to keep living. Sometimes even the possiblity of tomorrow is reason enough to keep going on. But then again what ever tomorrow brings might be the exact reason some choose to kill themselves. I don't know.
I'm kinda all over the place with this update, but I just wanted to get others thinking about this. Even with drugs. I know there's a "War on Drugs" but my question is why do people feel like they have to even try drugs? I feel like their are way too many people in this country not living. We work crazy hours, eat fake/poisonous food, put technology above human interaction, worry/stress over bills, money & debt & hate eachother for trival reasons.
What do you guys think?
