NOWADAYS there are so many students who commit suicide, but as a student myself (of California International School), I don't think it is necessary to do so.


If you feel under too much pressure at school, you can ask for help from the family and from teachers and friends.


Don't think it is only your problem and that there is no one around to help you.


I know that schools in Hongkong and parents put too much pressure on students, but the right thing to do is to face up to the problem and ask both schools and parents to change.


They shouldn't make things so difficult, but if we don't tell them this, how can they know and how can they help us? Suicide is such a futile act. There is nothing more important than your life.


We all have the potential to do many things and change things. But if you lose your life that opportunity is gone.
