Such a terrible thing especially this time of year I live in a town of less than 12k souls and we lost another great person to their own hand, this
guy was a big part of the community and he took his life before an award ceremony where he was going to be the guest of honor, fire fighter of the
year. What really gets me is despite him being on the phone with a friend at the time and that friend knowing he was upset and hearing not just one
but 6 gunshots (he shot at the wall before turning the gun on himself) and a moan and then nothing this “friend” couldn’t be bothered to go
check on him or call in a welfare check.
It wasn’t until 18 hours later that the “friend” and the firefighters wife went to check on
him to find him dead, I know the chances of it making a difference we’re almost nil but I don’t know if I could live with myself being the
“friend” and not bothering to make the 10 minute drive or just pick up the damn phone to get a unit rolled out to do a welfare check. It boggles
my mind how you could be so complacent and show so little concern.
This was all over a woman a fight and her leaving with the kids who now don’t have a father, and she came back in less than a day, 24 hours
difference between life and death nothing is worth the misery that you put your loved ones through especially not over a relationship.
For the love of all that is good nothing is worth taking your life over, please if you’re ever having thoughts of suicide seek help and think about
those you leave behind.
