  2. Everyone loves to live longer. When someone commits suicide, don’t take such a thing lightly. Somehow we as a society has a part that contributes to suicidal acts. We sometimes turn a blind eye to someone in a severe emotional, psychological agony. When an individual feels like he / she is being rejected by the family, freinds or community, one loses all hope. Sometimes our fellow humans shy or fail to confide in us about their problems because when they do so we turn them into the laughing matter. When we hear that one has committed suicide, the first thing that comes into our mind should NOT be judgement. We are millions of billions of people on this earth yet human beings feel so much lonely that they resort to suicide. WHY? Let us be there for others to feel free with us
