[PORT AU PRINCE, Haiti] – Werley Nortreus, an intellectual, philosopher, music artist, author, writer, entrepreneur, and rising political candidate, says his heart is broken as he looks at how a lot of people are committing suicide in recent days.
The rising Haitian and African leader says that suicide is not the solution, and he encourages people to remain strong despite what they are going through. The leader says even he sometimes had bad thoughts in his head to commit suicide, he had to stay strong despite what he is going through.
“I’m really sad to see how people, especially black people are committing suicide these days. Every time I look at the news, it’s always bad news. I urge all silent sufferers to stand firm because suicide is not the answer. I, too, sometimes had this bad thought, but I had to stay solid because suicide is not the solution. If anyone is having suicidal thoughts, the solution is to call for help”, – Werley, rising political candidate.
Especially, in the black community, people committed suicide almost every day. Boys, like girls, young adults, committed suicide instead of seeking help to prevent suicide. In recent years, the number of suicide cases are very high. In addition to the new year 2022, many people have committed suicide, including celebrities and others.
