"There Is Always Tomorrow", Dr. Jordan Peterson-Arguments Against Suicide

This is an incredible article on a very intelligent and giving human.

The reasons are solid, caring and wise.

This kind of frank talk about the human spirit and about the sanctity of life saves lives.

Read the whole thing. 

It reminds me of a piece of wisdom regarding suicide that my father once relayed to me.

He was speaking to a young woman during the course of a medical exam a number of years ago and somehow they got onto the topic of suicide. Her English was not great, but she summarized suicide in a very astute way that I've certainly never forgotten.

"Suicide," she said to him.

"It is a permanent solution to a temporary problem."
