Earlier this week, I heard the news that someone committed suicide by jumping from the 27th floor of our building. Obviously, she wanted an ostentatious exit from earth. I couldn’t blame her. Well, it was not pretty. After her fall, she would have been a great cast member for the latest episode of the Walking Dead. Whenever I hear news like this, and there have been a few recently, I tend not to judge whoever did it. People say no problem will ever be solved by killing oneself, and I couldn’t agree more. But as far as this person is concerned, it’s over, it’s not her problem anymore. She may have wanted a grand exit from this world and she got it. Maybe she finally got the attention that she has been seeking all her life. Suicide has been a touchy subject for me, as I have gone through a similar phase before. I’m glad I got over it. It really does get better, at least for me. I guess, for this woman, it didn’t. Sad.
