" Growing up as a young teen, I had always
have a strong desire to serve humanity, but
like most youth, I was faced with indecision of
where to start from. Instead of sitting and
being confused, I decided to make a move.
Every time I look around, I see young people
who need to be motivated in doing the right
things for the sake of growth and
development, I see young people who if not
mentored properly will be a huge liability to the
community and wish i could tell them that
amazing things happens when you start
following your instincts, i see pervasive
abandonment of the members of the family by
others; the parents clearly appear to have
given up on their responsibilities towards their
children, I see a community that needs
innovative young people, I see a land that
relies heavily on young people for its growth
and development.
Death by suicide can magnify and complicate
bereavement, leaving community members
struggling to sort through grief, anger, guilt,
and the overwhelming feeling that they should
somehow have been able to prevent the
death.
Some individuals may be unable to cope and
the community as a whole may struggle with
how to respond to this crisis.
Beyond counting the numbers of suicide and
suicidal attempts however, is the often
unexplored psychological burden from feelings
of guilt, sorrow and anguish, which is often
experienced by the family members and close
associates of individuals who commit suicide.
Every act of suicide, affects averagely six
other people, at the very minimum. This
impact becomes amplified, when a suicide
occurs in a public situation, such as in a
school or work environment. "
