OOOps. I went surfing after I posted the ink to add a comment.... I could just add my own.



Apparently this guy self immolated by fire and left a note saying it was about apathy toward climate change... and he was sorry for the mess.

wow, just read it and the guy must of really been having some mental issue's to think that was a good idea.... Considering the good he had done for his community and the work he had done in his professional career , it wasn't like he hadn't done any good in his life. :purple

My opinion of anybody is lessened when they commit suicide. I might understand a little if they are terminally ill and in great pain, but it still leaves loved ones to clean up the mess.
Govern wisely, and as little as possible.

Not always Texan.
Some people have no loved ones in their life.

I think it is a purely personal decision to make. Self-immolation has been a symbol of despair and protest for a long time. Tibet springs to mind. :sad

Well, I remember what my friend who committed suicide used to tell me about the other friends we both knew since Kindy who'd committed suicide is that 'nature culls the weak....'

I remember he was really off his food before he went... and smoking way too much dope !!!

Atleast he didn't do it on the tree outside his house like my/our other friend... (Apparently the tree out the back snapped!)

I forgive him... I forgive all of them... but, yes: what a mess I suppose<-- I've never had to witness it!

Oh, and some people get seriously abused as kids.

How does anyone expect anyone to get over that?

Purely personal, for sure.

I think if someone is in that headspace that suicide is looking good, they really have no capacity to think of others. :purple

I agree ... I see it as the cowards option.

I remember being deeply saddened when the drummer from Crowded House (?) , or was it the flautist from Men at Work..?

well obviously BOTH... but .. he took his two dogs for a walk, and hung himself in a Park.!! :sad

You know what, I was more outraged that he did that to his dogs..

Wow, and hanging yourself in public... they talk about (in)famous trees in places like Port Headland and stuff...

Truly sad stuff... I wonder how the dogs did cope with it actually...

Exactly what it says, it's the cowards option. For some, suicide is easier than dealing with life.

I don't accept your personal blanket-view of people who choose to end their lives.

Sometimes, if they are still capable, it is the bravest thing... to do.

You can just say that... a 'cowards option',... but you really aren't paying attention to this issue …. nor are you cognisant of what LIFE throws up to every one. You are simply arrogant and superior, if that is how you approach the idea of suicide.

OR perhaps it is your armor, against such thoughts..? Or 'ideation' as some say it.
