    A "nervous breakdown" doesn't occur the day of a serious emotional trauma. He is exepcted to talk, and he knows he is. He has a huge number of supporters, and he's likely just running on adrenaline.

    I agree with this partially, which I suppose, my opinion is rather meaningless, but, whatever. Your post assumes that these are normal people, there are many individuals who feel nearly nothing after the loss of a close relative. There are also those who manage grief by dissociating from it, and I suppose that one form of dissociation would be carrying on life as usual.
    Either I'm right or you're wrong.

    No doubt. Still processing too, sigh. Takes time to accept the unbelievable.

    1. You have no clue what your talking about. There are many stages of grief, and it affects everyone differently. He could still be in shock, it might not have even hit him yet.

    2. It was an email to the church staff, he hasn't issued any statements to the press.

    "Matthew was an incredibly kind, gentle and compassionate young man whose sweet spirit was encouragement and comfort to many," the statement said.

    "Unfortunately, he also suffered from mental illness resulting in deep depression and suicidal thoughts. Despite the best health care available, this was an illness that was never fully controlled and the emotional pain resulted in his decision to take his life."

    Seems incredibly stupid of Warren to keep a gun in the house where his son lived who had attempted to take his life before. Sadly, it doesn't look like that gun made the Warren household safer.

    You're simply making my point: If you can disassociate yourself from such an integral part of your life, that is a sign of gross abnormality...................

    i'm so sorry for his loss. prayers for his family. suicide is simply awful, and no one should have to suffer the loss of a child.
