I'm gonna add a bit of advice here mysel:
Watch the movie "V for Vendetta." I know, I know, I know, that doesn't seem like very good advice, now does it? Well, if you happen to have seen
it, watch it again, and if not, pick it up. Very good movie.
Now, when you go to sit down and watch it, pay a bit of attention. The main actress (forget her name) has her hair shorn off, is tortured, fed gruel,
and thrown in a completely bare cell. While she is sitting there, feeling sorry for herself, down and out, and completely rejected, she happens to see
a piece of paper stuck in the crack of a wall. She reaches in, and pulls out a dried up piece of toilet paper. I cannot think off the top of my head
what, exactly it said, but I do remember the message it conveyed.
It was written by the previous person who had that cell. It was a female, who happened to be a lesbian. She wrote a letter of hope and love to
whomever may happen to find it. At the end, it said "I love you. I dunno who you are, where you come from, whether you are a man or woman, what race
you are, just know that I still love you anyway." or something to that effect.
Now, I realize that this is just a movie completely fiction. The "cell" the main actress was thrown into was set up by V himself in order to teach
her a lesson.
Now, even though this is just a completely fictional movie, it still conveyd a very powerful message (this scene in particular.)
1. V knew that by torturing her the way he did, he was hardening her. Strengthening her will to not give in, no matter the cost to herself. The letter
he placed in the crack of the wall, was meant for her to find.
2. With the letter that she found, and the new strength he was giving her by torturing her, she was learning the very powerful lesson that life in
general is greater than her own life. The very IDEA of love, and freedom and hope.....V himself.....was worth sacrificing in order to protect
something that is even more important than her very own life.
Now, I am not saying that dieing is the way to go. On the contrary. Your life is worth so much, that by sacrificing in the name of love, hope, and
freedom is the greatest act one can perform. (Hence: Jesus Christ himself dying on the cross.)
This is the very reason why suicide and hate IS a sin. You are, literally, throwing something away that has TREMENDOUS value to the world. Remember
