  1. Won't we all agree that there is an sudden major increase in suicide in St Lucia, the past 2 years? What do you think is the main reason for this increase? Please do not say the government. It is too direct and makes no sense. Examples 1. Lack of Jobs (financial constraint) 2. Lack of faith in God. 3. Lack of proper social and sporting activity for the youth etc.

  2. I eh working for sometime now and I will be damned if I blame Kenny Ti Pain, or any Goverment or make me take my life. I will solider on and pray for God to help me find work. I had a cousin who once tried to commit suicide simply over a man who left her for a younger model no government was in the equation so my point is people go down that road for different reasons my God forgive him.

    • Did police arrest your cousin for attempting suicide? Attempting to commit suicide is an offence punishable by a term of imprisonment!

  3. Stop blaming govt. for somebody committing suicide. Everybody taht is not working should all kill themselves.

  4. Why does everything has to be political, why does everyone expect the goverment to spoon feed them, there are always jobs, people need to stop worrying about working for people, and start making their own gainful employment;

  5. "Who feels it knows it". I am in no way shape or form condoning the young man's suicide. I believe that it is wrong and alternatives should be sought when dealing with personal issues. There maybe a whole host of reasons as to why suicides take place. Two years ago a close friend of mine hanged herself because of relationship issues. Two young men I knew quite well drank Gramoxzone over financial issues. ( They left a note indicating their reason for the act and also an apology). In today's society, many persons are faced with financial constraints. When this is added to our daily struggles it magnifies the issue. We need to spend time with each other and assist each other in whatever way we can. We could be that "hero" who prevented someone from committing suicide. Just spend time listening, loving and supporting each other. We can make a difference. Not the government, because we all have seen through their lies ( promises of better days). We need to rely on Jesus and each other. We all have our daily struggles but we must always remember that nothing is going to happen to us today that God and us can't handle together.

  6. Whilst we are here casting blame and speculating we must think of many people out there who are thinking about the same thing.My advise to them is seek help.talk to someone,pray to God,call the lifeline for counseling many demoninations here offer free counseling.YOU ARE NOT ALONE>SEE HELP NOW.

  9. Jonah 2:7-10 “When my life was ebbing away,
    I remembered you, Lord,
    and my prayer rose to you,
    to your holy temple.
    8 “Those who cling to worthless idols
    turn away from God’s love for them.
    9 But I, with shouts of grateful praise,
    will sacrifice to you.
    What I have vowed I will make good.
    I will say, ‘Salvation comes from the Lord.’”
    10 And the Lord commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land. (There is always hope, do not despair)

  12. Why do we keep on blaming government for every thing that happen in st.lucia. No government can bring this country back to where it one was. We are in the last days all we need right now is call upon our lord and pray.
