Friday Confession

I'll admit it.

I do not understand suicide.

I understand depression.

What I do not get, however, is how anyone could possibly be so selfish? How any person could leave the people who love them most in the world to clean up the mess? To live with the pain? To forever ask "Why?" and "Why not live?"?

I guess I've been fortunate enough to have never been close enough to that type of depression. But I have a very hard time finding any emotion other than anger at someone who would take his/her own life.

I just found out that my friend and her family are going through just such an aftermath. Please join me in my prayers that the family can find peace in such a terrible thing.
