    If anyone here reaches the point where they are considering suicide, please STOP, send me a PM and I will pray with you. Don't let your current mood ruin what is left of your future! You DON'T know what tomorrow will bring, but I promise you that if you end your life today you won't have a tomorrow.

    Well, Brian, that sucks... best of luck to you moving forward!
    I think that's just their reach compared to the "Average Joe," and the media bobbleheads using poor phrasing. You're right of course that within the family, it certainly doesn't matter more than one of their own. I suppose if any "good" can come from celebrity suicide, it's that it sparks a discussion among a wider audience.

    I once read something about pursuing a life of happiness vs. a life of meaning, with the latter being much better for your emotional wellbeing. An article popped up yesterday about the dangers of looking upon celebrities as having the perfect life, while not knowing what may be the prison of their existence. One has to wonder if Anthony Bourdain's celebrity was very socially isolating- having to deal with fans, paparazzi, wondering if the folks who hang with you are REALLY your friends, or just hangers-on, etc. Not sure if that had anything to do with it, but I do wonder.

    Agree, just mentioning trump...there is a underlying message. People have taken their own life’s decades before and will continue decades after. Sucks...sure but it’s not the presidents fault.

    Suicide is a touchy topic and everyone has their own thoughts on it just like everything else. Its best to keep opinions to your self. It will do nothing but start arguements. You don’t want to know my opinion, harsh but true.


    Celebrities? I never even heard of Kate Spade or Bourdain...not really celebrity status imho

    The only underlying message is what someone wants to read into it. I've already clarified what I meant about not having anything to do with Trump himself. If it still wasn't clear enough, then it only reinforces that fact.

    Can you let the new agencies know so they can stop running the non stop stories then?
