    Always sad when any person commits suicide and even more so when they are young with their whole life in front of them and so much potential. I don’t think it is more or less of a tragedy though when they are a celebrity or related to a celebrity. Feel sorry for his parents. Suicide is a selfish act but often happens because of deep depression. We should all learn to recognize the signs of depression and help those with symptoms to get help before they harm themselves.

      I have issue with your claim that it’s a selfish act. I find that is an observation from someone who is in the privileged position of having no idea what it’s like to be in that state of mind. I have read from experts, that it is a primal animalistic instinct that that when one is in so much torment and pain they just want it to end. For me, it is the closest to being able to describe what I have felt in the times that have led up to suicide attempts. It’s claims like yours that people are selfish that only inspire more guilt. I understand that it hurts to lose someone that you feel that you could have stopped it “if i only knew” and that it somehow is the one who’s dead for not being able to articulate their pain. I can tell you from experience unless you are screaming “I am about to kill myself” or you do the act in front of people, no one really knows what to do. Even then you are simply sent to a 3 day hold (which the last time i was tranquilized so badly I was awake for 1) I was then let go with a one way bus pass and a printed out map of how i should go to find my car which was over 45 miles away. I was still doped up I got on the wrong bus. A week later the only call I received about well being was for my dog, which they took from me claiming that i was abandoning her by attempting suicide. So screw you and your selfish claims.
