A lot of people say that Suicide is cowardly. I disagree. The one thing that is a constant source of apprehension and fear in humanity, is death. No one knows what happens when you die. Is there an after life? A heaven or a hell? Are we reborn? Or do we simply disappear?
Many of us are preoccupied with our own death and the preparations there of. We write Wills years in advance, we buy life insurance, we go to church and pray in hopes that through redemption we will obtain a better place in the afterlife that may or may not exist. We as humans fear death. It is something that we can not explore, we can not collect any data on or conduct any experiments on with any type of accuracy. It will forever remain a mystery.
Those who choose Suicide are not cowardly, they have chosen to dive head first into the source of the greatest uncertainty of death. In my mind, the choice to die is one of the most brave choices one can make. While I agree that Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem, it is not a cowards choice. It is often a choice of desperation and despair but it is not a choice made out of fear. To call the act of Suicide a coward discredits and ignores the human relationship with death.
