Re: “Too Soon: Could the Suicide of a Burlington Artist Have Been Prevented?

mistaking grief for unserved justice serves no purpose but to make matters worse. I am shocked that so many people feel it is absolutely fine blaming others for what can only be described as a tradgey. I spent years trying to keep my husband alive. I did everything but to no avail. People blamed not only me but our children who were just teenagers. It was horrible. When I posted how hurtful blame can be people immediately began disliking the post. What is wrong with people. I would say ask yourself what you did to help before criticizing others for not doing more.

It is very easy to call a person a monster, or say her death was avoidable. Clearly you have never dealt with a person who was suicidal, or tried to prevent someone from taking their life when they were determined to do it. People please think before you speak. Words hurt.

Re: “Too Soon: Could the Suicide of a Burlington Artist Have Been Prevented?

This is very sad but people need to stop the blame game. If someone is determined to kill themselves it is nearly impossible to stop them. I know this from experience. I also know what it is like to live with people who point their fingers and ask why you ever allowed it. My children have had people blame them for their fathers suicide. It is beyond hurtful. Suicide takes a huge toll on everyone involved, including the people who tried to help. It is hard enough to deal with the effects without people blaming you for it. No one causes another to do this.
