Suicide is, by definition, the act of causing one's own death. People who resort to suicide are often depressed, suffer from other forms of mental illness, and/or have recently gone through a traumatizing experience that makes them feel like death is their only option. Despite there being numerous resources for people who find themselves having suicidal thoughts, a lot of people just have no fight left in them. Once the decision to die has been made, they have no intention of changing their minds.
Death is something we all must experience alone one day. It can be a lonely thought to imagine dying with no one around to care. That might be one of the reasons some people choose to commit suicide in a public place. They want someone to care. To try to stop them. To notice. It could be a cry for help.
On the other hand, some people could choose to force others to witness their death because they want to be remembered. They want their death to be something that people talk about. Either way, suicide is a devastating way to lose a loved one, and anyone contemplating suicide deserves help to realize the value of their life again. Here are 10 landmarks famous for attracting the most suicide attempts.
