I only the the ignorant and half-witted.....so i'll see you tomorrow champ.

Why do you believe that your way of empathizing is superior than another's, when they do so by sharing their own story? Are you suggesting that you've cornered the market on empathy??

Sorrow may not achieve something for you, but what makes you think that if it does achieve something for someone else, it's less important or genuine than what you do to express or internalize your own sorrow??

I'd take a bat out of hell on a broomstick than your passive-aggressive cynicism any day. And i can't wait for your next emo-song of the year in the music thread. They provide me with so much insight.


Seriously though, do you even know what the word "emo" means in relation to music? And you are aware that the word "emo" is totally passe, right?

Great, not everyone is overly-empathetic you complete tool.

As I said it's sad this happened to the girl, but I'm not going to get depressed over it

Someone commits suicide every 40 seconds, so someone just died while I was writing this post. Should we be empathetic now?

Umm because people became aware of how serious the consequences of cyber bullying can be....

I don't think you have to know who Amanda Todd was to realize "holy crap she took her own life because of how bad cyber-bullying can be. I better share her story so we can learn from it and hopefully take steps in the future to prevent it from happening again."

It's not rocket science...

Funny how you're so against cyber-bullying when like them you use the internet to talk down to people from the safety of your computer screen. Also like them you probably would be too scared to say half the things you say on the internet to someone's face.

Good for you, i'd rather eat glass than be you


I talk down to those who puff their ignorance out there as something to be proud of. You want to make inane comments on a message board, expect them to be challenged and denigrated if they're obtuse and wholey filled with asinine logic.

And i'd have absolutely no problem saying anything i've said to you so far to your face.

It's not 'overly' empathetic, it's simply empathetic....again, something you've demonstrated with your own words that you're not capable of possessing.

No one asked you to get depressed about it, did they?

Someone commits suicide every 40 seconds??? So, there were over a thousand suicides today and everyday?? You're a loon.

7 billion people on the planet there big shooter, 1000 suicides a day is not that far-fetched.

Estimated numbers are someone dies in general every 1.8 seconds. so around 33 deaths a minute, pretty sure it wouldn't be that unrealistic to think one of those deaths is a suicide

One Million People Commit Suicide Each Year - World Suicide Prevention Day, September 10th, 2011

One Million People Commit Suicide Each Year - World Suicide Prevention Day, September 10th, 2011

Article opinions: 7 posts

Today is World Suicide Prevention Day - WHO (World Health Organization) and IASP (International Association for Suicide Prevention) co-sponsor this date every year in their attempt to combat global suicide rates.

Events this year will include:
  • The release of thousands of lanterns in Ireland
  • Volunteer workshops in Malaysia
  • Several organized walks in America and Australia
  • An Inuit Celebration of life ceremony, Parliament Hill, Canada
  • An education seminar in Bangalore, India
According to WHO, approximately one million people commit suicide each year worldwide, that is about one death every 40 seconds or 3,000 per day. For each individual who takes his/her own life, at least 20 attempt to do so. Suicide has a global mortality rate of 16 per 100,000 people.

Dr. Lanny Berman, President of IASP, said:

"On World Suicide Prevention Day, September 10, 2011, the theme 'Preventing Suicide in Multicultural Societies' will be embraced. As we develop and implement national and local suicide intervention strategies we need to be aware of cultural factors that can impact on suicidal behavior in diverse settings.

We have seen positive outcomes from our tailored approaches to suicide prevention. For example, the restriction of the sale of charcoal in supermarket chains in Hong Kong has resulted in a significant reduction in the number of suicides by poisoning from charcoal burning, and a concerted community response to suicide prevention at a district level shows a positive impact on rates of deliberate self-harm and suicide." "



Dr. Berman said that suicide rates are considerably reduced when leaders make suicide prevention a top priority for their entire systems, as is the case in the US Air Force. When programs that concentrate on improving recognition and care of depression are implemented, the number of suicides and suicide attempts go down significantly.

Dr. Berman added:

"In Australia, stricter firearm legislation coincided with a significant reduction in the number of firearm suicides, and, in England, restricted access through altered packaging of over-the-counter- medicines resulted in a reduction in the number of deaths by intentional overdose.

These few examples demonstrate that if we take into account cultural elements, we can make great strides in the advancement of suicide prevention, understanding and practice."



Activities have been held in over 40 nations throughout the world, IASP informs. World Suicide Prevention Day banners have been prepared in over 40 languages.

Suicide

Suicide is the tenth leading cause of death globally. In the USA there are two suicides for every homicide. Worldwide, the suicide rate has gone up by 60% over the last five decades - mainly in industrialized nations.

60% of all suicides occur in Asia. China India and Japan account for about 40% of all suicides, according to WHO.

16.5% of suicides in the USA are alcohol-related. An alcoholic has between 5 and 20 times the risk of committing suicide compared to the rest of the population. Individuals who misuse drugs are 10 to 20 times more likely to take their own lives. Approximately 33% of suicides among those younger than 35 years of age have a primary diagnosis of alcohol or other substance misuse. Among adolescent suicides, alcohol or drug misuse are factors in up to 70% of cases.

In Western countries, men commit suicide more often than women, but women attempt suicide more frequently. Experts say this is probably because men are more willing to end their lives through effective violent means. In the majority of countries throughout the world, drug overdoses make up approximately two-thirds of suicides among females and one-third among males.

Well, somebody who didn't already know the story goes "Who is this Amanda Todd?". Then they do a quick Google search and BAM awareness. It's pretty simple, even if the individual who posted that specific status was doing it for all the wrong reasons, it still equals exposure for the story, which is certainly one that people need to know.

It is estimated that approximately 4,000 Canadians (over 10 people per day) take their own lives every year. This translates into over 3 Million Canadians (family, friends, neighbours, co-workers etc.) who are affected by suicide each year.

No you specify to people who are too stupid to think and need every little detail spelled out for them, why would I only quote the Canadian numbers? Suicide is not a Canadian problem it's a global problem, keep grasping at straws

You win.

Go away. Why can't you just leave it be? Is it that much fun to be cynical about this? You may not be losing sleep which is totally fine but what exactly are you accomplishing here? Arguing for the sake of arguing? Hate to pull the sappy BS card but perhaps this isn't the subject matter to act like this in.

I could say similar to a few people here; some for this same garbage and some for bothering to pick up the rope. Seriously though, and I'll ask nicely, please just stop. You may not care or understand why others do but then again you don't have to understand it or agree with it.

I don't care if I'm the town narc I'm going to start hitting the report button. (I guess when I'm asked what I'm doing this very minute that will be my answer.) Hopefully the thread stays and the posts and posters don't.

Doesn't understand someones post-- they can't communicate affectively.
Someone can't understand his post-- they have poor reading comprehension.
