Suicide rates have increased by 30% in the United States since 1999.  When I read this, yesterday, I thought about the lyrics to a beautiful song written by Danny Elfman:
 
Everyone says sooner or later you'll reach the end of the line 
When things get rough some think it's easy to jump the ship . . . 
You decide
I say--don't throw it away 
There's about a million reasons why 
Though you've heard them all before 
And you're getting very tired 
Lay your head on my lap and I'll sing you this lullaby
Don't you know 
That everyone around you 
Has felt the pain you feel today 
You're out of control yeah--and you want someone to tell you 
When you wake up in the morning it'll only be a dream 
You're out of control . . .
There's a cloud-rollin' overhead and it seems to rain on no one else 
There's a black sun--casting a black shadow, 
And I know you feel so all alone 
You're out of control--and you want the world to love you 
Or maybe you just want a chance to let them know 
That you live and breathe and suffer 
And your back is in the corner and you've got nowhere to go
Nothin' for nothin'--everything's right at your fingertips--for a price 
Who ever said that life on this planet would ever be paradise 
I say--don't throw it away, you've got too many things to say 
If you throw your life, if you throw away your life . . . 
THe world will never be the same
You're out of control--and you move without direction 
And people look right through your soul 
You're out of control--and you want someone to tell you 
When you wake up in the morning it'll only be a dream 
And I wish that I could tell you, it'll only be a dream
