How do you feel if someone lost his life, sometimes through suicide? Dr. Pieter Hoekstra, logotherapist and theologian. He uses the image of a stubble field that assists desperately.

Life is not worthless, no one is worthless. Even when life is suddenly over, the life that has been lived is not lost. Believers live from the hope that when life is over, it is not over, but it is preserved for eternity.
