A close friend of mine tried unsuccessfully to take her own life the other night. As a result, I find it deeply appropriate that I will be greeted with this image every time I use the Google today:

Thankfully, my sense of humor is such that I am of a mind to appreciate the aptness of this image on this particular day.

Life is funny. There is humor to be found in all aspects of it, even the darkest parts. If my friend had been able to find some humor in her situation, perhaps she would not have taken the action she did.

So on behalf of my friend, take a look whatever it is in your life that gets you down and have a good laugh at it. You'll feel better, and you will thereby make the world a slightly better place than it was.

Sorry about your friend -- I hope she is able to get back. Thanks for the info about Google -- I am mostly accessing them from the search bar these days and not getting to see their cool graphics. But that is one worth seeing.

Your suggestion is a very good one, thanks. And I'm sorry, hope your friend gets whatever help she needs.

I'm terribly sorry to hear about your friend. Sometimes the darkness seems insurmountable.

Thanks, TMK, Matt, & Ruth. She is doing much better now.
