Wow you all sure do agree that it is stupid. How come ya'll think it's stupid though?
I very suddenly and unexpectedly lost a very good friend 2 years ago this past January to a self inflicted gun shot.
Everyone and I do mean everyone that knew my friend was completely dumbfounded, spouse and immediate family included. Looking from the outside in, it seemed all in my friends world was pretty dang good. Good marriage, nice home, smart as a whip, great job and just the most wonderful sense of humor and personality. It was a tragic and most of all senseless waste of a wonderful human being who loved animals, friends and family. Not sure some will ever get over it.
People think they are hurting no one...not so. But I can only assume that when a person gets to the point they're comtemplating suicide, they can't think about how others may feel.
It's also been my observance that those who threaten suicide are doing just that, threatening something they don't intend to. It's the ones who never say a word that a family member, loved one or who ever, finds them dead.
