After reading news all weekend and being immersed in divisional playoffs this weekend, 1 particular headline broke my heart for many reasons.
I can’t even begin to understand, but a 24 kid (yes a kid) who had done AMAZING work at such a young age and made some choices based on his belief — killed himself. Was is the stress of the trial? Or as A LOT of news agencies are speculating — depression. Whatever reason — it is a hard truth and a sad end to a really AMAZING visionary and kid who had a lot more to offer.
I don’t mean to start Monday on a sad note, but Mr. Swartz had so much (in everyone’s eyes) but made a choice to end his life, it really does break my hear. And it should have never gotten this far..
