My source: A flyer thingy for teachers at a school I was at a few days or weeks ago. I think they had to take a class and whatnot, thats what I heard two of them talking about.
My opinion: Suicide is stupid, life is hard don't take the pussy way out and man the fuck up. This also ties in with depression- which I've been through before. I also do not think depression is a desease, it's an emotion. A fucking emotion, it's as much a desease as being happy all the damn time. And those are the ones people want to kill. But as I was saying, man the fuck up and live your life and stop the bitch ass thinking of suicide. In the words of Eric Matthews: "Life's hard, little brother. Get a helmet." Also people should be allowed to kill themselves if they fuckin want to. I don't care what anyone sez, we are animals(if anyone disagrees, show them a large piece of minaral and a vegetable and ask are you made of this, if not beat them about the head with one till they're sure the're the other). But all of a sudden we aren't allowed to fight each other or kill ourelves? Call it assault, call it whatever, aslong as it's one on one police should leave me the fuck alone. And if I want to kill myself, Let me kill myself. I won't because I have shit to do in this plane of existance. I'm not a bitch-nigga either.
