Mass Suicides – There is a saying that life is precious but some people don’t value their lives as much.
In fact, they give up on their lives when it just bents out of shape and nothing seems hunky-dory. There is also a saying that when the going gets tough, the tough gets going, so giving up on life under trying circumstances is the figments of a tunnel view.
But then, sometimes matters get out of hand and become worse so that there is no other way seen apart from ending their lives, our heart goes out to the people who were made to do that by fate and left the beautiful journey called life halfway through.
