I am part Native American and I am tired of seeing the real people who discovered this contintent not Columbus getting screwed over and it's our young people paying the ultimate price for it. All that white man ever gave was diseases and war.

On Galiano Island I know 3 people that have commit suicide. It's always hard to accept. Our duty is to give hope to the children not to discourage them with all the negativities.

People get depressed in the winter, in Canada, often due to a lack of Vitamin D. A few drops a day can make a huge difference ( I used it myself when living in Victoria)

the depression and what takes someone to suicide isn't something that a few drops of vitamin d will help. the strongest instinct a human has...before sex even...is survival. when that instinct is gone no one can help. and getting to that point is a phenomenal process of aloneness too long. good thought for seasonal depression which is very easy to correct. very easy. maybe not for those ppl...however for the real sufferers i'm afraid it won't help.

Find something you love to do when you start to feel depressed. Mine is attempting to pick up one of my musical instuments and getting lost in my music. It helps with pain too.

For GoKatsura2016 "Super Independents," it doesn't matter if one is Siberian American or not. What matters to us is that they're youth and that they're people and that they're our fellow Americans. Like our young committing suicide over government student loan debt, there is no excuse for why our youth are compelled to take their own lives in such despair and hopelessness. There must be a change of generational leadership in this nation and throughout our communities so we can have positive leadership and good role models for our youth.

We are losing too many young people to suicide. It has to stop, I have also lost family members to suicide.

Suicide is a mean for coward to avoid to face the world 's hazards over and above that it is a great sin. the parents should impart religious lessons to motivate children not to committee suicide from young age. they should be told when they grow up they should be able to confront all odds as that is the life for man.

My grandmother did this for me. She taught me at a very young age that taking one's life is the only sin God will not forgive you for. I wish more parents would instill this into their children while they are still young and willing to listen and learn. <3 ~~^ <3 ^~~ <3
