Chris Cornell, part 2

One of the bits of wisdom I pretend to have learned on this journey through life is how captive we are to our natures. Some people, maybe most people think that we are blank slates when we are born; our experiences create who we are. Many believe all of our attitudes and preferences are "social constructs." The truth is that there are no absolutes; we are a mixture of how we are born and what we experience. The attached article is so perfect to explain the situation that dear Chris Cornell most likely faced when he committed suicide. While many may feel that suicide is the ultimate selfish act, it may be more true that it is more like dying from pneumonia - there is not much choice other than to get the best care possible if you know that you have pneumonia and know what that best care may be. It is a shame he did not get the help he needed.
