Life means different things to different people, when you know the true meaning of life, no problem or challenges can make you commit suicide. I feel unhappy when I hear that somebody committed suicide simply because of life problems or challenges. Many of us have forgotten that life is a battle and winning the battle of life requires determination, endurance and perseverance. Alberto Salazer said “An athlete who tells you the training is always easy and always fun simply hasn’t been there. Goals can be elusive which makes the difficult journey all the more rewarding. Great men do not attain all their goals but they do not quit.
I was reading an article recently about a boss at a troubled U.S Mortage Giant Firm, Freddie Mac who committed suicide. David Kellerman , 41 was found hanged in the cellar ( underground room) of his home. He was the acting Chief financial officer of the firm, which was blamed largely for taking risks said to have contributed largely to the global financial crisis. His wife called the police saying he has killed himself at their home in Vienna, Virgina.
Last month, a 14 years old boy killed himself in his father house in my country. Nobody knows why he had to take his life. His parent are still mourning his death, what could make a 14 years old boy kill himself? I think the boy is in the best position to answer the question. Herman Hesse wrote : It is nobler and finer to be conquered by life than fall by one’s own hand. In the battle front of life, refuse to cast thyself down. There is no problem that does not have a solution. Don’t give up! Once there is life there is hope. Shalom.
