Suicide: Living With the Question by Ruth H. Maxwell

SUICIDE: LIVING WITH THE QUESTION is a personal journey of healing and recovery. It shows how one family struggled to survive the agony and shock of a loved one's suicide. Although it cannot answer the question of "why," it can offer comfort as it asks other questions that open the possibility of looking at suicide in new ways. This book can offer solace to the many who are affected by suicide: Parents, siblings, spouses, children, friends, co-workers. For each individual left behind, the suicide is devastating. And the attitudes and lack of understanding in society add salt to the wound. SUICIDE: LIVING WITH THE QUESTION offers hope to others, a small ray of light to penetrate the dark shroud that covers the subject of suicide.

Quick read. I have had my mother and brother both commit suicide. This book is comforting. After a family member dies from suicide, friends/family/co-workers etc. may think they should have seen the signs, but after reading this book..... that is really not true. There are many unanswered questions after a suicide .... and that is ok. Also, the pain never goes away, it just seems to get a little easier to bare.

I don't know anyone that has not been affected by suicide ... a member of their own family, a friend, an individual in their community, someone at school, or even a tragic news story. Ruth Maxwell's story addresses the questions and challenges that her family and their friends were faced with after her son took his own life. Her honest and very personal narrative of the emotional, spiritual, and philosophical journey that followed his suicide is full of wisdom and insight. Her analysis of family dynamics and relationships is applicable to any crisis, not just suicide. I highly recommend it to anyone who has ever wondered how they would survive losing a loved one, anyone who has regrets about a personal interaction, and anyone who wants to improve a relationship.

God. It is that simple. He can and WILL save you. He loves you so much. Your life is just a prologue. It is something small that affects the book. How will your life affect eternity? What will your choices result in? Heaven? Hell? Anything? Your story could be great or it could be one of those cheap books titled 'the easy way into hell'. If you end your life now, you have just began either the besr thing or the worst thing.
