Thoughts – Jobloss and Suicide

At the meeting it was hard to learn about two members had attempted suicide right after they had lost theirs jobs.  I told them that I was glad they were alive.

I think if these are the two that where found, how many out there are successful in suicide because of job-loss during this recession?  Perhaps it is 1 in 100 which is actually saved so these two individuals represent 200 lives.  What is happening to the American worker, what is happening to America? God help us through this recession.

I truly wonder what the stats are on suicide & job loss.
