We have discussed lots of sides of Social Science last Saturday. Therefore, I think that each of us can have our own idea about what Social Science is. We all know that there are a lot of things which have to be talked when we mention this subject. However, I don’t have enough time to type everything and also my writing ability has limitation, so today I just wanna be concert with the phenomena called “commit suicide”.
First of all, we have to comprehend clearly the meaning of “Suicide”. So, what is “Suicide”? Simply speaking, “Suicide” is to kill his/her own or like The Wikipedia Dictionary has defined it in English: Suicide is the intentional killing of one’s self. You can click here for more details. As you can see, no matter how people decribe it, “Suicide” ‘s concept is still about killing!
The World Health Organization (2002) estimated that a total of 815,000 people committed suicide in 2000. They also said that within 45 years, the number of suicide worldwide has increased 60% of which 90% related to the inhibition of psychological and bankruptcy. It’s continuosly risen day by day!
Why do people commit suicide? This question must be appear on every books written about this social problem. According to our textbook that I’ve read, the answer is that people inherit the desire to kill themselves. It’s hard to believe, isn’t it? However, the book also said that these explaination may not seem especially convincing to contemporary researchers, but they represent the belieft widely held as recently as 1900 which means that statement was still unclear.
I think that there are many reasons for us to talk about. In present days,almost everyone has a more convenient life than in the past. Some of them don’t have to face difficulties so when something happens, they tend to collapse and it leads to suicide. But it’s only a small part, I think. Will you be strong and stand still when your own business, which is built by your own hands and brain, suddenly destroyed? Some people will but the others will not. And maybe they will commit suicide, except those who could think optimisticly like starting a new business or find a job in another company if they are really skillful. In addition, the influence of the celebrities is also very deeply. For example, in Korea, a country has a big entertainment’s impact to almost teenager in Asia, in October 2008, an actress named Choi Sin Jil committed suicide at her apartment and left behind 2 kids.For more details, click here. The police claimed that the cause of the death is she was depressed and could not be able to live like this any more, so she ended up killing herself. After this happened, the police’s report showed that the number of minors and teenager followed Choi’s action increased significantly. This is also warn us about how the entertainment world, which is thought to be harmless, can affect our future! Furthermore, violent game and film can also be dangerous because it’s very addictive and sometimes people use it to relax their mind. On the other hand, they watch it just because they are fed up with romantic one or psychosocial social one.
Anyway, there are thousand of reason people can give to justify their wrong action. But whatever it is, suicide will never be a good decision when you have problems in your life. When you do something, you have to think carefully about your future, your friends, your job and espeicially, your family. Who gonna be hurt the most beside them? Don’t you think that your mom will cry every night since you’re gone?! Don’t you think that your dad gonna lost everything just because of you?! I can’y stand it if I gotta see it! It’s hurt me so damn much! (sorry if I am not allowed to write like this in my assignment!).
To solve this problem, it’s not only the government’s responsibility but also ours. Each of us has to pay more attention to this issue and speak out our point so that we can handle it together as soon as possible.
Last but not least, you’re still alive means you still have a chance to rebuild your life, again!
