Response to DamnYankeeInHouston (Reply #54)

56. The suicide that haunts me most happened on a stateside military base years ago. You probably know

how vulnerable many of the troops and their families are to the payday loan sharks that cluster around a lot of military bases. Anyway, the father deployed and the family was mired in debt. This little boy no more than 8 or 10 years old killed himself and left a note explaining it was so the family would have one less mouth to feed. I'll never get over that.
