Be Human, be real, have some compassion!

It always saddens me greatly whenever I hear of an artist’s suicide.  So much pain.  Darkness.  No joy in anything.   I hear many people who have never experienced depression criticize why and how they could have done such a selfish act.  We need to be careful of these criticisms especially since we’ve never walked a mile in the afflicted’s shoes.  Offer those affected by these tragic deaths words of comfort instead.  Have some compassion, folks.
