Hope

A society that breeds suicide is one that has neglected to foster certain traditional Christian attitudes: acceptance of suffering, mercy towards oneself, one’s inadequacy, one’s mediocrity, an appreciation of life. Young people have not been taught why they are on earth and what they are to do with their existence.
