Don't Say 'Suicide'!

SaddddI am sure we all heard the tragic news of actor Robin Williams death this last week. It is so sad when a person gets to the place where they think that ending their life is a better option than living it.

Depression is a real challenge in our world today and many people battle with it. It is estimated that one in six Australians face depression at some time in their life. As a result, suicide is now the biggest killer of young Australians and accounts for the deaths of more young people than car accidents. 

If you are walking through what seems like a dark tunnel, please don’t say suicide. Talk to someone. Share what you are feeling and going through. There is hope. You can step out of the shadows and into the light.

Jesus said, "A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of." (John 10:10 Message Bible)
