The rate of suicide among young people has been a cause for concern. It is pathetic that a young individual full of energy and a promising future will decide to take his own life all because of frustration and depression.
Dear, young people, life is not always pleasant. Life is not always a bed of roses. Challenges are part of the building blocks for glorious destiny. So why run away from them? Giving up this life is not an assurance that you will find the peace you so much desire. You did not make the decision to be born. Your life is precious.
The Holy book make us to understand that our life is not our own. It belongs to the Almighty God. He gives and takes it whenever He wishes. So, why take what does not belong to you. Remember, many are in the hospital laying on the sick bed, fighting for their lives. They will pay anything to have the life, the health you’re enjoying right now.
Say no to suicide. Always remember, you are the hope of our dear nation.
