• Schoolgirl found hanged after saying she ‘wanted to be with daddy in heaven’

    What a sad story showing the dangers of a misguided belief system. From the Mirror:

    A 12-year-old girl was found hanged in her bedroom with a note saying she wanted to be with her dad in heaven.

    Maria Kislo was left devastated by the loss of her father, Arek, who died after suffering a sudden heart attack in 2009.Tragic: Schoolgirl Maria Kislo was found hanged

    The tragic schoolgirl was found by her distraught mum Monika, 35, who had gone upstairs to read her a bedtime story.

    Maria, from Leszno in Poland, had left a short note, which read: “Dear Mum. Please don’t be sad. I just miss daddy so much, I want to see him again.”

    The youngster’s body was retrieved by brother Michal, 13, but she was already dead.

    Heartbroken Monika said: “Five years ago I lost my husband Arek, this year my daughter. I don’t know if I can go on, and I wouldn’t if it was not for my son.

    “She didn’t seem unhappy. She didn’t have problems at school and she seemed a happy little girl.”

    She added: “I had no idea she missed her father so much, she never really spoke about it.”

    [UPDATE: This article is probably false. Quite how and where it derived some of its claims is speculated here:


    Now, as you can see form the comments below, perhaps this is good reason to pull the post. Perhaps, indeed. However, I think it gives us, as you can empirically see, good grounds to debate suicide and to debate, well, whether there is some opportunism going on here. I am not one for covering up mistakes etc. I don;t think I was opportunistic inasmuch as I was thinking, though maybe did not elucidate it here in the OP, that perhaps the delusion of heaven/hell etc has a genuine aspect of bribery to it that it prevents more suicides than it promotes? So, what worldview is more prevalent with suicide?]
