Should a death attributed to suicide such as the recent death of Lisa Lynn Masters make us less sympathetic towards the deceased?

  • No responses have been submitted.
  • No, we should never lose our sympathy for death.

    Death is a hard think sometimes. Every single person will die some day. It can be tragic when someone who is close to you dies. It is especially tragic when they die because of suicide. Many people think that they do not want to live and they decide to take their life, but what they do not understand is that they leave behind many people that will have to live with that for the rest of their life.

  • No, suicide is deserving of our complete sympathy

    In my opinion, we should be just as sympathetic to deaths caused by suicide as to other kinds of deaths. It is easy to criticize a person for taking their own life, but very few people understand just how desperate and pained many suicidal people are. Rather than shaming and blaming those who commit suicide, society should seek to better understand the reasons and emotions that lead people to suicide.

  • No, i disagree.

    Death that i attributed to suicide should not make us less sympathetic towards the deceased. This is because it is still a loss to the loved ones. Whether it is suicide or not, death is still painful to the deceased and we have to sympathize with them. It was not their wish.

  • They were suffering.

    No person in their right mind chooses to commit suicide. A person that makes that decision is not mentally well. If anything, we should have even more sympathy for a person like that because their mental health problem cost them their life. We need to extend understanding of mental health care further to prevent these tragedies.
