World Suicide Prevention Day

It’s been over a year since this comment has attested me how powerful blogging is. This has reminded me of using what I have to reach people and bring hope. 

Today, September 10, 2014, marks the World Suicide Prevention Day which started in 2013 through the initiative of International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) and World Health Organization (WHO). According to WHO, About 3000 people on average commit suicide daily and nearly one million people die by suicide each year. Could you imagine that huge statistics of people committing and dying of suicide?

So what can we do? And what can you do? 

Let’s bring HOPE to these suicidal people and to others! 

There may be problems, hurdles, and challenges in life but that should never be the reason to end a precious life. Probably, you have a friend, classmate, or family related to you closely committing to do so. What you can do?

Be the light! Don’t get tired to remind those people that life is not really smooth sailing. That life is tough so we’ve got to face it. That there are undesirable circumstances that we need to overcome.

We have to PREVENT suicide. Prevention is always better than cure. And I believe that suicide should never happen and it does not have to happen. Ending your life is not the answer to everything that’s confusing you to think normally. Ask help and there are a lot of people willing to help you. Don’t ever think that no one is bothering or caring you because there are a lot of them willing to save you. 

If you’re about to commit suicide now, throw away that idea already. Your life is so precious and there are lot of opportunities in store for you. You may feel unloved, unwanted or hated but believe me there is someone up there who really loves you so much. His love for you is insurmountable and He’s with you in your journey.

And we can only find HOPE in Him.
