Suicide takes the lives of nearly 30,000 Americans every year. The World Health Organization stated that by 2010, depression will be the #1 disability in the World. Its 2011, so the question is suicide the #1 disability in the World?
Based on societal trends, elderly people commit suicide 50 percent higher than young people, whites nearly three times more than blacks, men nearly four times more than women. It appears that other causes of death are being effectively handled today, but suicide is continually to increase.
Romance break-up, unexpected pregnancy, problems with school or problem with the law, a major loss, serious injury, and a stressful family life are risk factors of suicide. Sometimes you can tell when a person is depressed, but you can most defiantly tell in mood swings, increases in the use of drugs and
alcohol, and giving away possessions.
1 in 65,000 children ages 10 to 14 commit suicide each year and suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death for 15- to 24-year-old Americans. So, basically every 15 minutes someone dies of suicide. It’s really sad and
depressing that help is not easily accessible.
Suicide is a very important issue and if you ever lost a loved one or friend to suicide you understand the importance and desire to handle this issue. Presumptions are normally right, so if you ever assume that someone is potentially suicidal, refer them to help immediately.
When your in love, you will endure weird but wonderful feelings; that run through your skin all the way to your heart. However, how do you know if you love the person or just like him/her?
1. You love being around him/her.
2. You constantly think about him/her.
3. Everything he/she say to you, causes you to burst in smiles and/or laugh.
4. Your world is 'live' when your with him/her.
5. You feel that you love him/her.
'I love you' are strong words, so before you say them back, make sure that you really mean them and so does your lover, or whatever you call your boy/girlfriend!
Many people around the World were suprise to hear that Casey Anthony was acquitted of murder for her 2 1/2 year old daughter, Caylee Anthony. I take that back. Many people are angry that she was not found guilty, because they feel that their was enough evidence to link Casey to Caylee's death. However, for others, they feel that Casey was tried fair and her defense won her the case. Even with this said, yesterday when Casey was released, the verdict was obviously unraveling around her. Florida officials took precautions to protect her during the trial and law-enforcement officials will continue to do so, in some measure, as long as there is a credible threat, but it's unclear how long that will
last. If you ask me, I think we should accept the verdict and hope that our criminal justice system did not fail.
Even though Betty Ford died Friday, I will like to send my greatest condolences to the Ford Family. Betty reminded people of how Washington use to be, what needed to be changed and how she felt. She is a great rolemodel for those who are recovering from addiction and rolling into the politics lane. Personally, I admire Betty for her fresh sense of thinking and her upmost honesty to all she had any sort of relationship with. All we can do is appreciate and honor the service she has done.
