Recently, a woman reportedly committed suicide in the city's Jurain area with two of her young children. It's really regrettable that some children are not safe even in the custody of their parents. I think marital conflicts of adults must not victimize children. The entire incident represents the sickness of the insensitive grown-ups that children endure in our society. I can understand that the woman had to bear the intolerable traumas of a broken relationship and she had to put up with the alleged abuse by her husband and in-laws. I really sympathize with her for her ordeals. However, that doesn't make her awful act of persuading her own children to commit suicide justifiable. She should have had some compassion for her children. She shouldn't have made them the victims of her own misfortune and emotional turmoil. Instead, if she had raised her children with resilience, someday her children might have proven to be her ultimate strength in life.
