Against Suicide - Jennifer Hecht

November 10, 2013

It's a sad fact that the number of suicides has exploded in recent decades. Writer Jennifer Hecht, who's lost two friends to it, makes a philosophical argument against suicide.



I had three siblings who committed suicide. I have learned that for some it never does get better as much as we would like to think. When it is a constant struggle, suicide is a viable alternative. Not everyone's resistance and resilience functions as we believe it should.

You have expressed it beautifully. Thank you. You have my compassion and respect.
