...About Death

I don't know if any of you know this, but the internet is abuzz with a new facebook posting/suicide drama.

A 22 year old boy, heart broken after being dumped by his girlfriend of 4 months. Posted his suicide note on Facebook in chinese and in english (imagine that, he translated his suicide note) and posted a 45 minutes countdown before he jumped off a 14 storey building to end his "miserable" life.




Are you serious right now?

Thing is, I can't find it anywhere on the news. Apparently the chinese newspaper has published about him, but, heck, I don't read chinese. So, anyhoo, true or not, to anyone out there contemplating suicide, take a breather, think clearly. Suicide is not the answer.

Over a month ago, a friend of mine from work passed away in a tragic accident. No, it wasn't a road accident, there's more to it, but long story short, something happen and he died because of it.

He only just got established as a Licensed Aircraft Engineer that month, after years of toiling. He just got his first engineer's pay that month. Then he died.

He didn't choose to die. He had his whole life ahead of him. He was going to get married next year.

And now here, we have a 22 year old man who commits suicide because he got dumped.

If only life can be transferred from one body to another.

My friend died because his life was taken away from him.
This 22 year old guy who didn't have to die, gave his life away.

How stupid is that?

If your girlfriend dumps you, don't give away your life, GO GET A LIFE!

Suicide is so not the answer.
