In the Cincinnati area a 24-year-old daughter discovered the bodies of her mother and siblings. This is another sad tragedy. Evidently, the mother and father were going through a divorce and he was on the way to pick up the kids when it happened. I would pray that people would stop harming the innocent children when they go through their domestic problems. There's always another day coming if they can just hold on. My sympathy to the father and daughter.

My life has been about as hard as it comes, but the thought has never entered my mind to take the lives of my children, thank God.

This is so sad! I have been at the depths of depression - I have even thought in the past that everyone would be better off without me around and almost succeeded in making that happen but to harm my children - NEVER! I cannot understand how someone must feel to do something like that - I feel for the father and the sister of these kids to have had them snatched from their lives - I pray that he sister espescially can rebuild her life after the horrific sight that must have met her! xxxx

Yes, mummymo, it is the ultimate act of selfishness to know that it might be possible for one of your other children to come home and discover this.

That is awful. I agree that people need to leave the kids out of these things. I know that people love their children,but why do they feel that they must kill them. This is the ultimate form of family abuse!

You're right, carolscash. If you want to end your life, go ahead. The children shouldn't have to pay that price.

Why do they have to take it out on the children? It is not their fault that their lives are falling apart. It is so sad. My sympathy goes to the father and daughter also.

I think when someone has reached the point where they are going to take their own life they aren't thinking clearly. Perhaps they feel they can't do it alone or they may feel they couldn't bear to leave their children behind. It's sad that children get caught in the middle of someone else's depression. LIVE IN PEACE
