Suicide is in the news again after Robin Williams’s tragic death this week. (see Untimely Exits, an article in Canada’s National Post this weekend).
To those who love life, suicide is just so baffling. No longer wanting the only thing that is exclusively ours and that we truly own, our lives, is bewildering. We need to learn to love life on life’s terms, to love life for how it is rather than how it is for us – maybe then suicide will recede.
