Another in a week died of suicide. That’s three in the entertainment world. I wonder if this does not represent an overall increase. Something is going wrong here we need to be more aware of mental illness or a sudden change in people. Also despair has to be increasing news lately is not just depressing but its reaching into an atmosphere of despair. What is that doing.
I hope this is not a sign of a suicide epidemic. I have been noticing on comment boards on HuffPost and others a rise in “I cannot believe I am living in this nation now ...”. It makes me wonder if despair is not rising as well as anger.
Yes I know there are a myriad of reasons folks commit suicide. I cannot help wonder if there is an increase of despair that will result in an increase if not epidemic.
