So I can’t believe that Kate Spade (55) committed suicide — Hanging.
What an amazing fashion designer–so much to live for!
Famous for her gorgeous handbags (that used to be the business my dad was in too).
Her net worth was $150,000,000!
Why does someone so beautiful, successful, rich, and famous take their life???
Ultimately, none of these things make happy or meaning in life!
Still, it is incredibly hard to understand seemingly having so much and throwing your life away–unless of course, we consider terrible things like severe depression and other horrible illnesses that can break anyone.
Yet, there seem to be so many of these hugely successful people that take or lose their lives so young and with still so much to give the world:
Alan Turing (41) — Cyanide
Alexander McQueen (40) – Hanging
Amy Winehouse (27) — Alcohol
Chris Benoit (40) — Broken Neck
Christine Chubbuck (29) — Shooting
Dana Plato (34) – Overdose
Ernest Hemingway (61) — Shooting
Jerzy Kosinski (57) — Overdose
Kurt Cobain (27) — Shooting
L’Wren Scott (49) — Hanging
Lucy Gordon (28) — Hanging
Marilyn Monroe (36) — Overdose
Michael Jackson (50) — Overdose
Mike Alfonso (42) – Hanging
Prince (57) — Overdose
Robbin Williams (63) –Hanging
Sawyer Sweeten (19) — Shooting
Sylvia Plath (30) – Gas Oven
Vincent Van Gogh (37) — Shooting
Virginia Woolf (59) – Drowning
Whitney Houston (48) — Drowning
G-d should have mercy and help to take away the pain and suffering from people so that they can live and not die prematurely anymore. 😉
