Marking World Suicide Prevention day


Hugh Paxton’s blog is worried that the year doesn’t have enough days left. Rabbit day. Yes, posted on an earlier blog and all well and good. But today is “World Suicide Prevention Day”.

Almost every day is a “Day” and things are becoming crowded.

Preventing somebody from taking their life is complex. Having a day encouraging people to stop other people from killing themselves strikes me as a trifle reckless. Maybe they want to kill themselves? Who are you to stop them if that should be the case? And why have a day dedicated to this?

I don’t know but there is a book “Final Exit” that explains how to snuff it if you feel so inclined.
