• "Every 18 minutes somebody dies from a suicide, ever 43 seconds somebody attempts one."(And then I turned Seven)
    When people think about suicide, they think about someone taking their life away on purpose, or in other words it means "To kill yourself." Suicide is a dramatic word that can change the way people view things in life. It is a thought that brings a teen to the point of self-murder. It is an event where a young one feels desperation and pain just before pulling the trigger or jumping off the bridge. Many people who have thought about suicide are the ones not many people would expect. Their life has changed in a way and they're having difficulty adjusting to it. It is a time where everything seems to go wrong and that person feels empty inside. How can a person prevent suicide from happening?
    There are an average 80 suicides that happen in a day in the U.S.A. Nobody chooses to be born, but we all have the option to take our own life. Teens AND adults around the world are includes in gangs, depression problems, drugs, peer pressure.. etc. Suicide one of the most serious seems to have come up a lot, which is NOT a good thing. "I am depressed, ashamed of my looks, I have no friends, my life is gone.. nothing." A troubled teenager would say, "Killing myself is the only solution," Is it?
    When we are born we live until we die, but when is that? When we get ran over by a car? Drown? Executed, or when you kill yourself? Society tends to put a lot of pressure onto those people with mental and physical problems. Making them feel like something is seriously wrong.
    Some people believe that being homosexual is wrong and all gays should be wiped off the face of earth. Why do they believe this? Well, it's mostly because in the way that they were raised.. Their environment taught them that being gay, bisexual or lesbian was wrong. In our society today, anything said or done can be easily expressed incorrectly and therefore misunderstood. There is always someone that is going to dissect and analysis each and everything someone says or does. Leaving people hopelessly misinterpreted. There is no truth in what people may say the only truth is what you want to believe in. Some people may believe that an effective way to make a statement is by committing suicide. Born only to die. What is life? Is it going to school, getting a job, making lots of money or is it committing suicide? It depends on what values and morals are. We are all going to die eventually, but it doesn't have to be now. If problems appear there is always a solution, it is you option what to do about it and killing yourself should not be one. no one has the right to say self-murder is wrong, it may be stupid but if you select to kill yourself it is you who has decided what life it self is.
    My point in writing this "persuasive essay" thing is for everyone to be against suicide. It takes a while (13 years old - 25 years old) for someone to realize if they like their life or not, but it take one stab, one pull, or one attempt to say no. I hope everyone who is going through this is talking to someone about it. Enough said.
