"He had a terrific pain in his head that pain killers couldn't reach, an airiness in his voice that was only becoming more hollow, and other mysteries of despair I didn't want to see or hear. I knew where he was headed, as we all did, but I didn't know why. And I didn't want to know." 

This quote is taken from author David Vann's "Legend of a Suicide" a short story which follows the estranged relationship a son has with his father, who ultimately commits suicide. The book is loosely based on Vann's life as both Vann's father and the father in the story were dentists. The son in "Legend of a Suicide" notices something wrong with his father, but doesn't want to address it. You may see loved ones, friends and classmates suffering but it's hard to admit that someone close to you is hurting.
