Spring is Starting Off on a Bad Note

The Smokehouse Tobacco Outlet. These are memorials people have left.

Spring is being welcomed by a bunch of people. However, it's been sad around Fort Wayne these last few days. A local business owner died from gunshot wounds the other day. You can read more about it here: http://wane.com/news/crime/customer-finds-man-critically-injured-at-smokehouse-tobacco/

I also found out that a former co-worker committed suicide. I feel really bad, because I saw him the other day and I should have said something, but I didn't. I wasn't sure if he would remember me. It's really odd to think I saw him just a few weeks before he threw himself in front of a train. http://www.journalgazette.net/article/20140411/LOCAL07/304119969/1002/LOCAL

I can't believe someone would do that. I understand being depressed. But I guess I've never felt so down that things wouldn't ever get better. I don't know a lot about him, but I heard he had health problems and was in danger of losing his job. I am not sure how true that is, but I feel bad. It's so strange. We come into the world either through a vagina, or we are cut out of our mother's bodies. But there are a lot of ways we end up leaving. In these cases, one man had his life taken, the other took his own life.
