    No, not just in my opinion. By any objective standard.

    However, I understand that you're a bit of a misanthrope, and no individual life is needed for humanity to survive. However, that doesn't mean it's not a tragedy

    It has nothing to do with being a misanthrope, it has to do with people being free to choose what they want to do with their bodies. If someone doesn't want to live any longer, for whatever reason, then it ought to be up to them if and when they choose to end their own life. It's certainly not a tragedy for the person involved, they are exercising their free will. It's only really a tragedy for the people who were directly and personally involved with the one who committed suicide. It's just that the biggest deal tends to be made by people who neither had any personal connection to the individual in question or any understanding of the individual's mindset, wishes or desires.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    purely selfish reason...but I feel bad, in part, because I really liked the show he was on.

    It's how one views things that's the difference.
    And none of us knows what was in Lee Thompson Young's heart or mind. I wasn't familiar with his Disney background, but he did good work on "Rizzoli and Isles" and his star was continuing to rise.

    Only 29. Breaks my heart. Sickening.

    Because if my kids have problems I can help them fix it - killing yourself when you have 80 years left in life is ridiculous and senseless.

    I've dealt with this twice in the last year with my two older children. Guess what? They're worlds better, now. Turns out that what had them falling apart was manageable as long as they had proper support. Though I actually had to make a rule that they weren't allowed to hurt their selves in any way. I have to actually explain this to you?

    It's a tragedy to die for no reason just because you don't see a way out or someone else doesn't care about you.

    I didn't bring my children into the world so that same world can crush them. I brought them into the world so they can struggle and come out better for it in the end.

    Of course, my kids were 12/14 when this was an issue in our family. . .and is it not an issue anymore? No - it's just not as dire right now, but it's still a concern.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.
