In one year the average American today probably meets as many people as the average person did in a lifetime 100 years ago. And yet he’s far lonelier. There’s a big difference between being lonely and being alone, and the presence of other people

doesn’t necessarily help at all.

According to Los Angeles psychiatrist and author. Dr. Leonard Zunin, mankind’s biggest problem is simply loneliness.

Ps. 13:3 - Man’s ultimate solution for depression - SUICIDE

CHICAGO TRIBUNE

#3176 James Lee a young father had shot himself in a telephone booth. He called the paper and told a reporter he had sent them a manila envelope on telling the story of his suicide.

The reporter frantically traced the call but it was too late! When the police arrived the young man was slumped in the booth with a bullet through his head.

In one of his pockets, they found a child’s crayon drawing, much faded and worn. On it was written. "Please leave this in my coat pocket. I want to have it buried with me." The drawing was signed in a childish print by his little blonde daughter, Shirley, who had perished in a fire just 5 months before.

Lee had been so grief-stricken that he asked total strangers to attend his daughter’s funeral so she would have a nice service. He said there was no family to go to because Shirley’s mother had been dead since the child was 2 years old.

The grieving father could not stand the loneliness or the loss, so he took his life.

- Christ’s cry from the cross - Matt. 27:46
