What keeps the "rest of us here"? I can only answer for myself. I realized it would be a selfish act, an easy way out FOR ME, but not for the family I loved. Although many suicides and murder-suicides are the final "I got You!", some are from pure lack of hope. From the song "Center Aisle" by Caedman's Call. "What crimes have you committed, demanding such a pennace? Could it wait for 5 more minutes? And the cry for help, and this room seems so empty, and this room seems so quiet, and I hate the silence, I hate the silence, and I can't walk the center aisle."
When all else is gone, there is always hope and assurance. Take the time to talk, take the time to listen take the time to help. Choose life.
