I feel bad for the parents who are waiting for their children. I worry that whether the result is devastating or not, I hope they find the will to continue with their lives. Since suicide is often very common in South Korea. And S.K has one of the highest and increasing number of suicides. I just hope that they don’t feel bounded to the idea that their lives should end if there child’s life is gone. I understand the parent’s perspective that their child is their life, without them, their lives has no meaning. But I think many people will be affected by their death too. Nobody should die, life is too precious.
I know I can’t speak for the perspective of a parent and the unconditional love that goes behind it. Right now, I just hope the parents and friends are given the honest truth of the event.
