    I don't get it, I really don't.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I'll admit that I am somewhat judgmental about suicide. I haven't and won't say anything disparaging about Williams, but suicide always confounds me, and that's because both of my parents died way too young, and both of them fought so hard against their diseases to try to stay alive, and didn't want to die, but did anyway. When I think about someone who intentionally takes his/her own life, I can't understand it, and then get a little, wee bit, I'll admit - resentful.

    Please don't stomp me for saying that.

    Of course I wouldn't stomp you. I will, however, say that I do understand where suicidal people are, mentally and emotionally. It makes no sense to the rational mind, which is why it is not easily understood.

    He was a brilliant comedian, the best ever in my opinion, and an incredibly diverse actor. I can't really add to this thread, other than to say that his demons won, and my heart is broken.

    Nobody could equal him when it came to his comedy, and quick wit/ ability to think on his feet. Imo, he is the best of my lifetime.

    You are right about irrational thinking. Those delusional thoughts are very real for someone that's afflicted. Managing her medication was a daily struggle. The side effects often cause the patient to stop taking them. Then all bets are off.
    I believe the most important thing the world can learn from this tragedy is that depression (whether part of bipolar disorder or not) is a medical problem. Those who commit suicide don't kill themselves: their medical condition kills them.

    Motivation to commit suicide doesn't come from sadness; it's a feeling of desperation. The physical and mental hell of depression makes people want to escape it by any means possible. As was mentioned earlier in this thread, it's a difficult thing for someone who hasn't been clinically depressed in the past to understand.
    I fight against the ignorant, irresponsible, and/or closed-minded.

    I also understand that suicidal people are ill. I wasn't saying that suicide makes no sense to me. I was saying that I can't help but be somewhat judgmental about it because of my personal experience.
