    I am looking at it from the perspective of how we prevent tragedies like this from happening in the future so other families don't have to endure the horrible loss of a loved one as the Warren's are going through.

    Its not political as there is no political solution to this problem. This is a common sense problem, that will require common sense solutions, like not keeping a gun in the house when someone lives there who is suicidal.

    So you should clear the house of everything that could be used to commit suicide?

    Guns are the #1 choice for suicide in the US. So I would certainly start there. Statistics tell us that in many cases if a gun were not available quickly, many change their minds about suicide.

    Would you keep a gun in the house with a suicidal son?

    I do, and it sucks. I feel sorry for them, but there's also anger in their sorrow. I hope they don't take it out on themselves.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    As Christians you can be assured the 1st priority of the Warrens is disassociating themselves from the "sin" , as for guilt or even selfreflection, you can lay money on both being utterly alien ideas.........................

    He was their Son and i'm sure they are devastated that he's no longer with them. I can also be sure that his family and friends will spend many years wondering what they might have done "better" to have protected him. Not just now, but years of pain to come, always wondering why. Something i wouldn't wish on anyone. This is part of the painful legacy left by suicide, and my heart goes out to them.

    May he RIP.

    I agree. He sounded like a really great person too with a big compassionate heart. It is very sad.

    Re: Pastor Rick Warren's son commits suicide

    I've had a couple of Marines commit suicide. It is... well, there isn't a better word for it, it is a ****ty way to go. (if it got astericked, it started with an "s" and referred to waste) Marines we lost in combat we could tell ourselves we lost For something. With suicide..... just a hole. An empty hole.


    Those of you who have seen this as an opportunity to leap on a cause or on those you dislike.... I feel bad for you. It must be a joyless life, with a heart lacking in passion for others or (in at least one case) so full of vitriol.

    True. I never cared for George Bush but if one of his daughters committed suicide I as a parent could feel empathy for him.

    I have been to too many funerals with small caskets. It doesn't matter if you are 4 or 40 to a parent you are still their child.

    To this day when my dad died during my childhood I still remember how his father, my grandfather, looked destroyed with suffering. He lost a son and saw his grandchild become fatherless. It was almost too much for him.
