This is nothing to talk about. Many are silent. Shake their heads. This is a country that scores high on the happiness index, a country of few psychiatrists, where suicide hotlines shut down from underuse, where counselors become matchmakers instead. What to believe in an atheist state. The old believe they have three sons: the Medicine Son, the Rope Son and the Water Son, suicide by pesticide, hanging or drowning. These are reliable sons. There are no others here, gone to the city, or gone. What to do when you turn grey, alone and unable 'to taste the tea. '
