Yesterday, the breaking news was the suicide of Facebook Live murderer Steve Stephens.
This morning it's the hanging death of Aaron Hernandez. He had been a former New England Patriots star, 27 years old and had been acquitted of a 2012 double murder.
Some might assume that he decided to take this road more traveled in the 21st century because he had lost hope of ever getting out of prison for the 2015 murder of minor football player Odin Lloyd.
But, that's arrogant. Hernandez won't be coming back to inform us of his thought processes which led to the decision to commit suicide. Also, Hernandez might not have been aware himself what was going on in all those parts of a human being which make us behave the way we do.
From a family with a suicide gene, I know not to even try to connect the dots on why any one gives up on life. Instead I celebrate their release from inner turmoil. Peace of mind is a gift the universe doesn't give to everyone.
May Hernandez rest in peace.
