Nobody chooses to be born but we all have the option to take our own life. Teenagers face many problems in today's society. Depression, gangs and drugs are all negative pressures on adolescents. Suicide, a very serious issue seems to come up more and more often. "I am depressed, ashamed of my looks, I have no friends...nothing," a troubled teenager would say, "Killing myself is the only solution." Is it? According to statistics, suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people 15 to 25 years of age, following unintentional injuries and homicide.

No one has the right to say self-murder is wrong, it may be stupid but if you select to kill yourself it is you that decides what life is. I have had a few friends who have seriously considered ending their life. None have actually gone through with it but they have raised very interesting questions that I think cannot be answered; how much pain is too much? Is there a good enough reason to kill yourself? I have faced many problems but they have never been so bad that I have considered suicide. I am a true believer that everything happens for a reason but ending your life for whatever reason, isn't a choice for me. You must keep an open mind even through issues that seem to have only one answer. We all create our own world to exist in.
