A good friend of mine attempted suicide on Friday night. There was no consolation I could offer, no argument I could have, no love that I could give, no goodbye from him to me.

I realized that despite our 3000+ mile difference, it would be unbearable to live without someone who I care about so deeply, someone who effects me so much, someone, who despite his disbelief, makes every argument and upset to smiles and laughter, worth it.

I know that he is going to try again. I am too afraid to even feel afraid. I am powerless.

Maybe things have been difficult in his life, to a point where the pain is unbearable, and he doesn't believe he will ever feel better. Usually when people are serious about suicide, it's because they think it's the only way to make their pain stop. They can't wait any longer for things to get better.

You live a long way away from him. Does anybody who lives near him know how he's feeling, and that he's in danger?

His family situation is very very poor, but they would be the only people that know about it nearby him.
