The vast muItitude of suicides in ottr ~iet~ today is testimony to' the fact that perhaps life is not always bearable. But there are far too many suicides fotus not to believe that many of them could have been prevented. What c0dd we tell someone we know who is contemplating suidde? l~htld we have anything ofs~e to dis- suade them from their magic act? Maybe we should tell them that life is always ~, or at least we sho~ belie~ thor it is: Amazing, one can adapt to ~tever comes along. Even ff ~. loses his mi~ in a strange way that too c~d be conside~ adaptation. If de.us are ha~ us, we st~ald learn to deal with them. And altk~ prayer may be considered a form of e~apism ~ some, it ~ be ~e ~ation to ~pe into the arms ofa 1o~ ~.
