If you need emergency assistance in the United States, call Suicide Prevention at (800) 273-8255 or the Veterans Crisis Line at (855) 238-5745. Otherwise call 911 or your local emergency number.

For my personal views dealing with suicide which I have called SE (Self Execution) please read and share my book if you believe it can help others. Download The Survivor's Guide to Self Execution right now!

This is a specially formatted version of the Survivor's Guide for PDF readers so you can read it on almost any device. Check your app store for a free PDF reader.

It is also available in paperback at Amazon.com. Buy one for a friend (especially one without a computer or cell phone!).

The crack of dawn comes early they say,
not early enough to take nightmares away.
All night I toss and all night I turn,
from memories I wish I could burn.
Luckily now I don't remember them,
they're masked by the pills I call my friend.
Yet, I still have them I'll never forget,
I awake some mornings covered in sweat.
Yes the pills mask them at night when I dream,
at least now I don't wake up from a scream.
I'm groggy at night and groggy in the morn,
from serving my country during Desert Storm.
But, even though it stays trapped deep within,
I'd do it all over again and again.
For in this beautiful land that we live,
Serving your country is the most you can give.
Stanley Victor Paskavich/Stantasyland
