I have always looked at suicide with contempt and disgust. It is a sorry way to go, perhaps he found peace. His loved ones surely didn't
I like his shows, but you could kind of see he had a few demons brewing underneath.

Yeah loved his journeys, knitting the cultural fabric of the world's culinary culture. making us feel interconnected.
He was also a huge advocate for those were not as fortunate as himself.

I think this is part of one of the underlying issues... As a society we're losing empathy.
We can all think to a time of our darkest moments. Healthy people know the immense pain is temporary, while we'll carry a scar, the earth will still spin.
But we forget some people carry those dark moments most of their time as they walk through life. I can't imagine that, hence why I empathize and not sympathize.
We forget to try and do that, me included.

Part of that might be that with all the media today we get to see so much on the negative side that we become numb to it.
