There is an increasing social problem among the youths of today : skipping classes, dropping out of schools, joining secret societies and getting involved in criminal activities. They are despised by society. It is common nowadays to hear youths committing suicide. These are tragic acts and sadden the hearts of many. How can we help them ?
Some youths just want to run away from reality, choosing to end their lives. On 22 May 2014, a Tunku Abdul Rahman university student, who was only 20 years old, jumped down from the 18th floor of his apartment and died instantly. Although the real reason for his decision to end his life was unknown, it was a great loss and caused grief to all his loved ones.
Another incident that also caught world attention was a 21-year old university student, Zheng jie. On 21 May 2014, he brutally killed four ad injured 24 passengers at the Taipei MRT station. When interrogated by the police, he admitted to having suicidal thought.
