Because sometimes depression can be debilitating.
Yes it can but I do know with proper treatment people are able to work.
My children are my legacy.
This appalling type of callousness is emblematic of the decadent times we live in.
There are some of us who do not want to glamorize suicide because of the copy cat concern especially with teens.
My children are my legacy.
It's a tough issue no doubt. But I guess I think about the many people who are dealing with serious mental issues like depression who commit crimes--kill a spouse or shoot up a classroom. The law deals severely with these people, their depression is irrelevant--thinking about that woman in Tx who drowned her kids. She had a documented history of depression. She is in jail. The law only looks at whether or not the accused know right from wrong. Now you can claim suicide is a victimless crime in a sense. But the survivors, particularly victims, are absolutely victims.
I know it seems harsh but I have seen this up close and it's tough to give someone who causes such profound anguish a pass.
I never inferred that suicide was ''victimless', there is more than enough victims to go around, including the person that accomplished the act, what I did say was that 'vilifying' the person who committed suicide was not therapeutic to the survivors.
The DJ's are "completely shattered" by what has happened..
I am sorry, but as a compassionate human being who tries to see all sides of the story, I can't help but feel their pain...
So many lives have now changed over a simple, innocent, prank...
The DJ's may never return to the air...Comments at the end of the article have folks wanting to charge them with murder..
I am not condoning what they did in any way, but it was certainly not done with malicious intent...
They now have to live the rest of their lives, because of this woman, who apparently was so traumatized by their innocent joke, that she could not longer face the world..Her kids or husband apparently were not as important as being duped by a couple of Aussie DJ's..She could not live the rest of her life knowing she transferred a phone call, so she decided to change the lives of many with the most selfish act known to man...
Yes, I feel sorry for the DJ's..Yes I feel sorry for her kids and husband and their families..
No, I do not feel sorry for her..If this was her biggest problem that she could no way overcome in life, then her life was pretty damn good...
The lesson here is about the power of royal cult.
We are bad enough here with our celebrity worship.
But the Brits? They are nuts.
