I'm having difficulty reading this...
It's just not natural...
Suicide is the most common cause of death in men aged under 35.Men are nearly three times as likely to take their own lives than women....the friends and family of the victim......more than 1,300 young men still took their own lives last year...
At such numbers; 1,300+ men, all under 35, killing themselves, that equates to in excess of three-and-a-half men every single damn day. Forgive my taking it personally, but this truly sickens me. So much wasted; so much joy those people bring into another's life; so much energy - all squandered for the sake of despair and a system that largely ignores their good deeds of a daily basis. This is truly sad.
One thing that should be done, but won't, is the government agencies that hound men into this corner with a poisonous potion of prejudice - should be called to justice.
