This article compares suicide survivors’ emotions with the emotions felt by victims of crime. Both have a sense of helplessness & rage, an inability to trust, a persistent preoccupation (with the crime or suicide), & a loss of belief that the world is just. However, the author asserts that at least victims of crime can heal through their ability to turn their rage against the perpetrator – a choice those who are bereaved do not have. (VM)
