"At the time, Mr Ritchie said, "Never be afraid to speak to those who you feel are in need. Always remember the power of the simple smile, a helping
hand, a listening ear and a kind word."
It's easy to forget in the hectic bustle of daily life. Mr. Ritchie remembered.
There are people who believe there are no consequences to suicide. I think there are situations where suicide is an option, such as when someone is
dying in agony and there is no reasonable hope left.
But generally speaking, I don't think suicide is a good thing. Especially when one is still young -- a waste of a perfectly healthy body. The effect
of suicide on the surviving relatives can be devastating, etc.
And death of the physical body is NOT the end.
Mr. Ritchie did good.
