Yes, but I see very poor people living in desperate situations in the back streets of Jakarta.
However, suicide is extremely rare in these parts of Jakarta.
How is it, that desperately poor people who have no hope for the future choose to live, whereas, wealthy people like this have everything, but choose to commit suicide?
