People kill themselves not because they want to, but because they feel it escapes a worse suffering. Those unfortunate souls that leapt from the burning twin towers many years ago, were those acts of selfishness or desperation? How about farmers that are killing themselves after being crushed by debt and losing their farms? Iíve read that farmer suicide rates are 5 times higher than the average - are farmers just a selfish group of people?

Mental illness and depression are diseases, not selfish choices. These people and their families need help and our sympathy.
