A Curmudgeon’s Viewpoint (June 8, 2018)

Alright. Anthony Bourdain killed himself. Kate Spade killed herself. Robin Williams killed himself, Kurt Cobain killed himself. Yes, it is tragic that talented people chose to take their own lives, but what about the rest of the people who choose to die at their own hands? Like the ones who are bullied in school? The transgendered who are shamed and ridiculed? The ones who are terminally ill and choose not to be a burden on their loved ones? Where is your sympathy for them? Why aren’t you there for them?

Excuse me for being a total asshole about this, but there are so many suicides here in the United States alone, and nobody gives a shit about them, but a celebrity offs themselves, and the news services are creaming themselves over it. The little people who suicide…well the only publicity they get is through social media. I would rather mourn the little people who thought that there was no one for them to help them through their problems.
