I have written reams on suicide and suicide prevention. Click on those two links and take your pick. But skip the Suicide Monologue, at least for another week. It is inappropriate for another week. And if you do go there, then mind the humor alert. I am serious -- about the humor alert, that is. Some of you won't find it funny. It wasn't written for you.
But before we abandon the suicide conversation in favor of the next thing, let's expand the frame. Here's the deal. Of all the people alive on the planet today, 50,000,000 will, at some point in their lifetimes, struggle with suicide.
I can't say we will think about suicide. Those of you who think about it in passing seem to think that the seriously suicidal think. There is lots going on inside our burning brains. But thinking doesn't really describe it.
