I read a comment about a Berkeley student leaving a suicide note on her journal before jumping off one of the buildings there. Like any rubberneck driving by an accident, I went to look. To my surprise, there was some good stuff there. Namely this analysis of the value of higher education.

And on a more morbid note, I’ve always thought about how fragile some people are. Sometimes just a little comment could push someone over the edge. Like this. I wonder if that guy feels guilty. I understand where he’s coming from though. I’ve known people that were always depressed, and just didn’t want to feel better. They just wanted everyone around them to feel as bad as they did. I don’t know if you can help people like that, or if you just have to save yourself.
