ANY THOUGHT OF SUICIDE, whether you are a teenager, a businessperson, or a retiree, is not an answer. It may appear to offer help in your despair. But it is a lie and offers no solution.

While attending a small college years ago, I felt that there was no place in the world for me. As I sat in my room trying to decide how I would take my life, I said out loud, "There has to be a way out of this." And instead of taking my life that evening, I went to a church service on campus, offered by a local minister.
