Finish Him

Boys like cars.
Boys like fast.
Boys drive fast cars.

Boys like tools.
Boys like power.
Boys use power-tools.

Boys like games.
Boys like war.
Boys play wargames.

Bullets are fast.
Guns have power.
Guns are for war.

If I buy a video game,
I’m going to load it.
The temptation is too powerful.

If I buy a gun,
I’m going to shoot it,
I have nobody here to stop me.

Boys like fast.
Boys like power.
Boys can’t wait,
For this wargame to be over!

Listen to Danny Gokey—Tell Your heart To Beat Again song

In this country, many of those who commit suicide have received little or no medical help. Indeed, they rarely tell anyone beforehand of their plan—when there is one. Often the act is impulsive. According to Matthew Nock, a professor of psychology at Harvard, most people who die by suicide “explicitly deny suicidal thoughts or intentions in their last communications before dying.” Some experts fear that suicide is simply becoming more acceptable. “It’s a hard idea to test, but it’s possible that a cultural script may be developing among some segments of our population,” said Julie Phillips, a sociologist at Rutgers.
Prohibitions are apparently loosening in some quarters, she said. Particularly among younger people, Dr. Phillips said, “We are seeing somewhat more tolerant attitudes toward suicide.”
In surveys, younger respondents are more likely than older ones “to believe we have the right to die under certain circumstances, like incurable disease, bankruptcy, or being tired of living,” she said.

Excerpt from How Suicide Quietly Morphed Into a Public Health Crisis

“This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again.” Bible, John 3:16, 17
