Crisis-led suicide epidemic: Greek mother & son jump to death

Published: 24 May, 2012, 20:00

What would you do if you had read that?


But the one thing everyone seems to agree on is that the family had been struggling for a long time. The night before, Antonis Perris posted a suicide note of sorts on a popular Greek forum, saying he had no way of resolving the family’s financial issues.

“The problem is that I didn’t realize that I would need to have cash, because the economic crisis came so suddenly. Even though I have been selling our possessions, we have no cash flow, we have no money to buy food anymore and my credit card is maxed out with 22% interest rate.”

Perris continued to say that both his and his mother’s health deteriorated, and that he saw no solution to his most basic problems – getting food and medical help.

He ended his emotional statement by blaming the “powerful of this earth”, holding them responsible for the country’s – and his own – financial crisis.

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.

Okay, not to sound like I have no feelings, but people kill themselves everyday, all over the world. If his mother was an Alzheimer patient in her 90's, then it is a good chance that he himself was in the early stages, being in his 60's. Most people would have sold a little, or all of the land, and moved somewhere else. Obviously he was not in the right frame of mind. Sad, Yes! But it does happen everyday.

Now with that said, I am in dire straights myself, with my family. We are about to lose everything. Since you have the means, do you want to help someone. If you do, that someone is me and my family. And I am deadly serious.
