Is suicide weak? Is suicide selfish? Surely as a self sufficient, independent person, it is your choice whether you live or die? Perhaps it is more selfish to label the victim and force them to live for your sake than it is to silently slip away? Is coward really the right word to describe the victim? I would lean towards brave and fearless of the unknown. I doubt committing suicide is an easy choice or a choice at all. often minds are clouded with depression when one ends it. Therefore in most cases suicide is a result of depression.
