Question: Did you lose a loved one to suicide because of their student loans?

Did you lose a loved one to suicide because they were overwhelmed by their student loan debt? If so, and you're willing to talk about it, please send me an email (ccrynjohannsen@gmail.com). I realize this is an enormously sensitive subject, but if you're willing to share, reach out today.

Also, if you are feeling suicidal because of your loans, please reach out to those you trust. If feel you are a threat to yourself, call 911 immediately. There are also these options:

Don't forget that in the legal "profession," you also are dealing with many depressed workers. According to Elie Mystal and ATL, this 78 year old lawyer jumped out of a window in Chicago.

Now here's an issue the media seems not to want to touch! I wonder why they won't.

@ Donna Furiosa:

It is almost Biblical/Shakespearean isn't it?

Human Tragedy brought about by the greed of some members of the society.

These are the times we live in.
