Today in class, while the teacher was trying to start up a debate, he casually brings up a news story about a man who committed suicide and then showed us a video of the said suicide victim's mother, who was crying and talking about how she never expected her son to do that and all this heartbreaking emotional things a mother would say after learning of her son's decease. This proceeded to bring up a riveting debate about suicide, whether its a choice or not, whethers it selfish for a person to commit suicide or not, and all these judgemental views, with people using personal connections to the issue suicide, to back up their reasoning and opinions. And I guess people are entitled to their own opinion, so I dont want anyone getting all hurtful and stuff even though it is a serious issue. But I was wondering (if anyone responds to this at all) what your views on suicide are. Follow the rules and just keep DISCUSSING, no arguments.
