Encouraging Suicide Note
I’m hoping something good will come of my early exit. So it won’t have been a big waste.
I’m optimistic, but I’m also realistic. Jesus Christ died for all our sins yet we find increasingly perverse ways to thank him and his Father. He just wanted us to love each other. That’s the challenging part for us, right?
You could say “some things never change.”
Or do they?
That’s up to you. If you’re reading this, you’re one of the people who can change the world.
You won’t let my death be in vain.
If you think I’ve done a good thing for our world, if I’ve left the home nest a little better than I found it, a little more secure for everyone else, then I shall depart this planet with a humble request.
Honor my memory by loving each other.
Honor my “sacrifice” by taking care of each other.
Be brave when the ill and deranged try to discourage you. Be brave. That’s what I keep telling myself in these final minutes. Be brave.
Love your alleged enemies.
Love the lowest and the frailest, even as evil impulses encourage you to exploit them.
Love those who are different than you.
Free yourself. Refuse to be a slave. Refuse to be a slave-owner.
Act with compassion and kindness and empathy for all living creatures. Then and only then will everything be right with the world.
Then “liberty and justice for all” will be more than a theory.
I’m going to die with a smile on my face, because I know I’ve done what I can. And that’s all any of us can do.
Thank you. Namaste. I’m eternally grateful that you read these words. My hope is they’ll be useful to you. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to serve you, my brothers and sisters, with my one and only life.
I am blessed.
And so are you.
