Your point is right on about what God gives people that they can handle. I questioned that for years as I seen friends and family go through horrendous things.
1st part- I completely agree.. there is a line between when you think about doing it, when you are seconds away from committing suicide, and when you really do it... I agree, those people are courageous. I mean if they are at that bad of a point in their life that means they made it through some pretty hard situations in my opinion..
2nd part- I have seen it too.. I have seen families be tore apart from homicide,suicide,and etc.. And most people/ families make it through it.. but then there is the few occassions where they didnt. And it is just things that I ponder on wondering why would some live through things then others not..
