It is no myth that in many cultures suicide is seen as a highly
honorable act, usually the privilege of elites and rulers. The Christian
ethic, on the other hand, views suicide as something intrinsically sinful
and punishable by eternal damnation. The reason for this being that those
who die by their own hand bring shame to our creator. Maybe he should be
ashamed? The veils that are thrown on life to make it look pleasing and
desirable begin to wear thin when we look at the suffering that is
everywhere around us; only the blind would say otherwise. What prevents
us from drinking from the well of death? Selfishness and weakness. The
selfish side of us wants life while our weak side is afraid of death. Let
us find the courage in our hearts to make the great leap! Let us make the
creator blush with shame!

The gun is pointed to my head. Shall I pull the trigger? What I
really fear is that the gun might not go off, that all I will hear is a
an inaudible ....click…. What happens if my gun is a defect? I will be
standing there, pulling the trigger hundreds of times, and the damn
thing will not go off! Let’s say that my gun is fine, what happens if the
bullet lodges in my skull and does not kill me? I will walk away with
nothing but a massive headache! The worst case scenario is that it will
leave me paralyzed but conscious, so that I will be unable to take my
life in the future, because I will not have access to my arms or feet. I
am also worried that if I succeed in blowing my brains out I might cause
some unbearable stress to my mother because I will ruin the new carpet
that she bought…. I guess I could always do it outside… My gun is
nothing special, not those fancy ones you see on T.V., but I hope that it
will do the job when I decide that it is time to say good-bye to this God
forsaken planet. The day a person chooses to commit suicide on is more
important than Christmas or their birthday, hence a big celebration
should be held with a gigantic feast, alcohol and drugs, and then ....
Is this when society takes someone’s free will into its own hands?
