• An Autopsy can have only a few outcomes homicide, suicide , or natural. Being angry with me will not change the fact that a young graduate full of hope died around Christmas , or an other young person jumped of a bridge. Suicide speaks not only to the individuals personnel pain but their perception of how their community will deal with them when they reach out for help. Will they be judged ? Will they be accepted for who and what they are ? Or persecuted ? Will they be told that their lack of hope is really a lack of faith and the pain they are experiencing is self inflicted ? Answer these questions ? Would you rather have these people in your mist and have to help them or or you quietly thankful they choose the path they did so not to be bothered by their needs?

  • It is appalling that you, THEMIS, can say that Dr. Dale Pigott died at his own hand. You are one cruel  freak.  Unless you were there, how can you make this assumption? And now your unsubstantiated statement is going to make his boys and wife feel better? You are undoubtedly one cruel son of a  .........  gun!

  • So Themis is it your assumption that Dr. Pigott killed himself also?  You mentioned in your comment it was by his own hand....then I put 2 + 2 together with the appearance of this blog.  You seem to know quite a bit about this town for being a visitor.

  • Themis,
    These churches are just waiting to help. But not intrude.
    The sad fact is the most depressed people are alone in a crowd, and somehow have lost the drive, self esteem, or whatever it is to allow them to reach out for help. You are not alone in this world. There are hundreds of thousands who have lived through what you are right now. Simply lose your foolish pride and say "can you help me?"
    The out poaring of love will knock you to your knees. And pray.
