Suicide
Question from FrankV on 10/22/2013:

Dear Judie,In "Orthodoxy" G.K. Chesterton discusses suicide. In the "old" days a suicide was buried at the cross roads. "There is a meaning in burying the suicide apart. The man's crime is different from other crimes-for it makes even crimes impossible....A suicide is a man who cares so little for anything ourtside him, that he want to see the last of everything." I think the last part sums up all the ideas of suicide quite well.

Thank you, God bless you,

FrankV
