World Suicide Week Ends on 9/11 – The Day The Suicidal Became Murderers

by | 11th, September 2010

WORLD Suicide Prevention Week takes in 9/11 – the day when suicidal loons killed thousands in New York. The week begins on September 5 and ends on the 11th.

World Suicide Prevention Day falls on 10 September –one day before 9/11. The World Health Organisation says:

On average, almost 3000 people commit suicide daily. For every person who completes a suicide, 20 or more may attempt to end their lives.

A suicide makes for a grim statistic. But why did World Suicide Day have to be one day before 9/11? The first World Suicide Day was in 2003, after the attack on the Twin Towers in 2001.

Suicide is horrific – but at this time of year we think of the suicidal as murderers not as victims…
