Ehm, not to belittle the tragedy and the obvious cry for help, I just couldn’t help but burst out laughing when I read that last paragraph!
This is a girl who attempted suicide who has had her stomach pumped and rather than try to understand the problem so they can resolve it, their idea of a solution is to take her to a police station to sign a pledge to not attempt suicide again!
Yes folks, that’s the deterrent which a girl intent on ending her life is going to pay heed to, a pledge not to do it again.
