To trim it down in New York suicide as "cause of death" is ranked 6. Close to 83% of all suicide cases in the US are cases recorded in California.
As of August 11 in the US Robin Williman is added to the 30,271 stat casualty for severe depression resulting to suicide for 2014.
In the Philippines, suicide death rate is increasing especially amongst teenager. We should be watchful if we see someone who is grieving, very sad and is isolating himself. Do not ignore, do not disregard; be concern and make yourself available for that person, you might be saving someone's life even if she/he not a relative.
As a confession suicide came cross my mind year 1997 I almost fell into it. Thank God I am still alive right now, and thank God for Gilbert Ravago a loving neighbor/brother who was in a way watchful with our family during that time. Thank God for my 3 loving sisters who are also my barkada when we're much younger.
I believe the real medicine for someone who is stricken by clinical depression is family love and support, another person or someone who is willing to be with the person in time he/she is clinically depressed. Last May-June of this year, I was so afraid I will lose my Lola from depression, I am glad we have a strong family to be there for her. Now aged 85 she is happy and even getting much stronger.
OTHER THOUGHTS LURKING IN MY MIND.
I believe Robin William is a goodman, how he acted on screen speaks of who he really is.
I miss this in FOX Movies, I wish I have a way to get a full length of this Robin William 2002 classic.., soon.
