Unhappy Man Commits Suicide Over Bush's Reelection

Apparently, a young man killed himself at the WTC site over President Bush's reelection.

Here is a link to the story: http://www.cnn.com/2004/US/11/07/gro....ap/index.html

God rest his soul

I'm sure he's in a much better place, and I bet he'll never have to worry about seeing Bush again. He might be luckier than the rest of us know. Still it's sad, Bush is killing our youth, not only with war anymore.

I'm BACK & SINGLE. So lock up all the hotties!

Who knows why the guy killed himself? We are living in a society that thrives off of paxil,zanex and psychotropic drugs. Who knows? Drugged up and dumbed down.

Sharapova,Kirilenko,Tulyaganova, are the three hottest women in the WTA!!!!

Geez, everyone on the board is so irritable today!

According to the people who knew this man, they feel that is why he committed suicide. I agree you never really know why someone does what, but I wrote my title with the quotes of his friends and family in mind.

Of course not! Any person, who commits suicide for whatever his or her reasons, is a sad loss to the world. I just posted the article because I felt that this is where our country is going.

Apoet,while I don't necessarily think the man killed himself over the election,I don't think you should have to apologize for posting it. The article just gives someone some things to think about.Thanks for posting.

Sorry if I seemed like a bitch, but the article and the fighting in Falluja has me greatly upset today.

True, but I think his mother suspects that is the reason for why he committed suicide and his supervisor feels that his suicide was a symbolic protest.

Sadly enough, one of my dearest friends was suicidal on the day after the election and directly related his feelings to the election's outcome. That is why this article is so personal to me.

Whatever reasons he did so, it is a shame that someone who seemed to have so much to live for would commit suicide. This is tremendous loss to his family, friends, community and the world.

Well, it wasn't the first suicide at the World Trade Center. Thankfully, he at least didn't take 3000 innocent Americans with him.

JESUS

The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. Ps. 36:1

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Ps. 14:1, 53:1

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Prov. 1:7

...Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding. Job 28:28
