Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them; Ecc 12:1

The Rock group called “The Suicide Girls” make money by promoting the concept of suicide. In fact, there are fads among our youth like the Emus which also promote this concept among our youth as something really great. These elements are floating around among our youth which glamorize suicide, such as a game where they actually hang themselves in their closet, and then remove the rope before actually dying to see how close to death they can get. Many times they err and actually die before they can free themselves. The culture among these groups is a study of suicide to worship it and promote suicide pacts making it romantic and desirable.

In 1995 in the United Status, the CDC in Atlanta did a study on suicide among 10,904 high school students. In the 12 months before the study, 24% had seriously thought of suicide, and 17.7% had actually a specific plan of how to do it, and 8.7% had tried to do it, and 2.8% had been somehow injured in their attempts. There is a suicide in the US every 17 minutes. It is the 11th cause of death in the general population, and it is the 3rd cause of death among youth (15-24), after accidents (1st), and homicide (2nd). There are more suicide deaths in the general population than homicides. ((http://www.suicide.org/suicide-statistics.html))
