    I've known several military buddies who took that unfortunate route. The circumstances are still suspect for a few as they didn't appear to have any reason to do so, but many people harbor demons that aren't visible to the rest of us. Anyone who reaches that point where they commit suicide aren't thinking rationally, thus I disagree with your belief that it's an intentional "FU" to those left behind wondering why it happened. That is definitely the case with most of those I've had firsthand experiences with...

    Years ago, I read an article by some head shrinker who said suicide is an act of anger.

    I have always considered anyone who committed suicide as crazy and not something I would ever do. Twenty years ago I had a heart attack and afterwards the Dr put me on Lipitor. Within 4 weeks I started having strange thoughts about suicide, just out of the blue, I thought. I talked to the Dr and he immediately changed me to Simvastatin. All of those thoughts went away. Several years later I saw some articles about Lipitor causing issues like I was having and realized it was the medicine and not me. Still on it BTW with no problems.

    Be careful about what medicines you take and do research.

    We can agree to disagree. Are all suicides intentional FUs? Of course not but heading to a public range to off yourself sure says something about you. Hanging yourself in your own home where your family finds you (something I have seen) is also telling.

    I get that people have inner demons. My first-hand experience is about half and half. Look, if you wanna off yourself, who am I to tell you not to but some who do care not one iota who they hurt in the process. Is that not selfishness?

    SlimJim is right on the money.

    Rotten suicide people who think it ok to hurt those they leave behind deserve zero sympathy and should be left out for the vultures to eat.

    The one area I do have sympathy is children. Seeing children do this disturbs me. Children often do not have control of what goes on in their lives, unlike adults.

    No, he's not, and neither are you.

    Hopefully no one close to you ever commits suicide, or you wonder for the rest of your life if you could have prevented it.

    The majority of suicides have to do anything with anyone outside of the person committing them. They are personal, not revenge or vengeance on others.

    Read and learn...
