My wife's sixteen-year-old brother committed suicide on Saturday night. Apparently, he was upset because his girlfriend wouldn't kiss him and he hated the military school he was in (surely among other things). There is nothing that can prepare you for the horror of such a thing happening to someone really close to you.
Though there is nothing that can prepare you, there are definitely some things which some say in order to offer comfort which makes everything considerably worse! At the top of that list has to be "God does all things well and some good will come from this!" NO! There is NOTHING good about suicide! It is always tragic! To even posit that a god of love could have done anything, yet chose not to and still have to call him "good" has got to be the height of unreason and the most telling evidence of brainwashing! Such a person, standing idly by doing nothing could never be called "good" in any comprehensible sense!
