If Suicide’s the Answer, What’s the Question? Part 03
The Cracker Jack box said, New Prize Inside. The six-year-old tore into the box and turned the contents onto the table. There it was … clearly labeled Prize. But instead of a “real” prize, there were instructions for how to download an app that promised “fun.” The child’s face fell, disappointment and disillusionment sending roots deep into the heart. Unmet expectations turn to disappointment and disappointments turn to disillusionment. This week, we look at unmet expectations, disappointment, and disillusionment as three root causes of suicide and ways we can help turn the rising tide of life-ending acts.
