After hearing about the suicide at the University of Montana over the weekend, just like everyone else who heard the I felt so sad. For the family, for the friends, and for the person who felt there was no way out of a bad situation.

To be honest I have never felt the feelings of wanting to end my own life, but throughout life I have found that it's not an uncommon thing. We have all felt backed into a corner and not sure what to do. One thing is for sure, suicide is never the answer.
