             last silent goodbye to your friends and family, and you leap to your death. .
             By doing this, you're making a permanent solution to a temporary problem. .
             You may be solving your own personal problem, but imagine the pain, suffering, .
             and anguish that your friends, family, and peers go through. The people .
