Suicide: Jumping off the ledge

Yesterday afternoon I witnessed something very shocking. While having lunch with my parents and sisters at one of our fave restaurants in a residential mall, we were interrupted by a cacophony of shouts and confusion.

The Cancer of May 2014

Firstly, I apologise for having been "missing-in-action" lately. I have not been writing, reading nor visiting other blogs and sites.  The month of May was not easy. It was, in a word, cancerous.
