my little sister was hit and killed by a train a little over two years ago. it was an ACCIDENT. and she paid the ultimate price. so for all these people who have something negative to say you must be pretty perfect to have never made a mistake. you should probably think before you say anything because if it was one of your family members or close friends im positive your reaction would be different.
i would like to tell the family i am so sorry for your loss. my heart goes out to you.

Yes, I am!! If you can't take the time to look both ways to see if a train is passing by or coming towards you, I don't think you want to live or you are a dumb ass!!

It's clearly the cool way to kill yourself right now--- walk in front of a train.
This is like the 15th person I've heard in the past year or so who's done this.
People -- stop affecting so many others with your suicides.... do it in the safety and comfort of your own home. Stop traumatizing others - they have to see it, the engineer has to feel guilty for the rest of his life, and the passengers are all delayed.

Stop it already!!!

Get some pills and a 5th of Jack Daniels and do yourself in if you must. But leave the innocent people/bystanders in peace.

Maybe that drove her to do it.
Maybe she figured I can't afford to move. And I'm gonna get killed or mugged by theses "diverse" new residents. So she went out on her terms.
