The Reporter said Aaron W Norton-27 said it was self-inflited. I heard he worked at Daylight Donuts.

I know a death of a family member is very tragic, but killing yourself is a very selfish act. They don't think what it does to the rest of the family. I know I may sound cruel, but it's true...

Must take issue with 'a prayer for the family' calling suicide victims selfish. First off your moniker is impressive then you have to get self righteous. Why was that statement even necessary? Does that help the family any? Does it bring the person back?

Your statement may be true sometimes, but not in every situation. It is easy to spout off the rhetoric without knowing the full situations. Please answer my question at the end of this post

My niece was born with severe physical problems including a painful intolerance to food and even the smell of food. The pain got so bad and no help from the medical profession, she took her own life at 14. The reasons she left were that she was tired of the doctors throwing her into a mental ward, she couldn't take the pain anymore, and she wanted her mom to be able to enjoy some things in life. My sister had spent everything she had trying to find help for her daughter.

So do you say she was selfish?

Could not agree more!
Such a selfish act!!!!!
But at the same time I have a lot of friends that have taken their own lives, and some people's minds just aren't strong enough to cut it! Make it, work thru it....
Sad either way!!!!!

Not strong enough to cut it. It takes so much to go through with that. The unknown of death and the potential afterlife. The eternity. What is sad is that a lot of people who do commit suicide are good people and people like Dog eat dog are still alive when they should commit suicide.

Whats sad is that you people are adding insult...to SUICIDE. Adding insult to the pain this mans family is feeling. id be ashamed if i were so narrow minded. my cousin took his own life and i had never considered his act a selfish one.

my prayers go out to the family and friends of this man.

My prayers go out to this family. It is such a hard thing to deal with and so many unanswered questions

Sad, sorry for your loss. It is one of the hardest things to got through and then ignorant people say stupid things that don't help. If you have ever gone through it with a family member, you sure look at it differently. No need for these unlearned, biased, pompous, self-righteous statements from people who think they are comforting you.

My sister had co-workers that had a 'office pool' on how my niece had committed suicide. Then turned around and tried to act like they were compassionate and caring.

The article said self inflicted gunshot wound. It didn't say suicide. Don't just assume you know what they are talking about and mean.

Lets get this straight here. Unless you are Aarons friends/family you dont have any right calling him selfish. Because thats not who he was! He was my best friend. If you dont know the real story keep your mouths shut! He was one of the kindest, positive, care free people I have been priviledged to meet. He always smiled and his love of life was contagious. Whatever the story is on what truly happened that day is irrelevant. He lost his life. A young man who still had so much left to do and bring to this world is gone. His friends and loved ones are heartbroken over our loss. So how about instead of asking for details and making snide, rude, insulting comments and accusations you put yourselves in the position of his loved ones.

I knew Aaron from high-school. We were good friends back then, and he was a great guy. I have a lot of stories and memories with him. I wish I could of seen him one last time, and possibly talked him out of it, but I don't blame him or think he was selfish. My thoughts are with his family, and friends as they grieve.

The only way the words of some stranger could hurt the family or add insult to injury is if after their loved one died they actually thought going on Topix to read the comments left by strangers would be a good idea. I don't imagine if I lost a loved one I would be trolling topixs anyway. People make stupid comments on every single topic there is, some for attention, some to get people worked up, some out of sheer stupidity. But everyone that gets on Topixs already knows that, so why would the family go on Topix to read stuff after losing a loved one anyway? If the family isn't reading Topix then they won't be hurt or have insult added to injury unless those that call themselves their friend tells them. Why would they do that?

Your rationale may be correct. But it still doesn't make it right. There is a severe lack of respect when certain statements are made. Regardless of whether those parties close to the person read them or not. But I have learned that the inconsiderate comments on here are more a reflection of the person who makes them. Even anonymously.

You're absolutely right.
