I really do not understand why you people have to always bring GOD into the problem. God was never the problem and never will be the solution. People are! God(s) are just very convenient excuses that we use for our own selfish ends and gains.
Don't blame the government too cos, 66.6% of you voted for them!!!! You voted for them, that's what you get, comprehend? everytime you want to blame the policy changes making it tough for you or the living standards getting higher or someone else is snatching your job away, make sure you are not in the 66.6%! It's the reaping the seeds that the 66.6% sow
When you take a step back & look at things from a macro perspective, you will know that mankind cannot survive without the presence of God. Money, power & fame can solves LOTS of your problem, but only God is BIG enough to truly fulfill you.
Whatever your religion or belief may be, let's pray for the poor guy who took his life today. May he find peace wherever he has moved on to.
We all need a kinder world.

just that it's not publicised widely enough. mental health problems are often equated to insanity amongst many Singaporeans, especially the middle-age and elderly group. so people do not see the 'need' to seek help.

Thanks for biting ....
So, I presume, Raymond, I have 2 questions for you.
I am very curious about religious people like you. Are you are a creationist or an evolutionist? Do you believe in the science of evolution, ie we evolve from a singel cell organism --> apes --> homo sapiens? Or did you just pop out of the mud?
I am glad that you feel fulfilled. So can I ask, when you pray, do you, first, pray for yourself and then, for the people around you? Or do you pray, for the people around you, then yourself? Do you pray, say for all people then, regardless of race, religion or creed? You pray for them, so that they will believe in what you believe, or do you pray for their goodness and well being?
You pray, because you genuinely feel for it (and for the others) or because you need to? Do you pray because you wanted to go to heaven? Isn't that for your own selfish reason, ie because you do not want to go to hell? So at the end of the day, isn't it all about your gains and ends?
IIRC i ever read about singapore has one of the highest suicide rates in the world... more the one person committing such act everyday...
