Youth suicide: Students counselled after Sydney primary school girl, 10, takes her own life

(Reported in The Sunday Telegraph ,December 07, 2014)

We continue to treat this as if it were an individual problem, as if there’s something wrong with the children and adults who harm themselves, or who are anxious or depressed.

When will we wake up from our illusion of separation, and acknowledge that this is our problem as a society and indeed as a human race?

When will we start taking responsibility and asking ourselves, not what is wrong with these children, but what is wrong with society?

What are we doing, as a society, as a human race, to create these problems?

When will we wake up from our illusion of separation, and recognise that we are all intimately connected?

When will we ever learn?
