September 6, 2010 7:58am CST
Hello lotters, A husband who has a wife and a kid ended his contract as a crew in a fast food chain. then, the night when every one is sleeping, he hang himself...then wife and relatives wake up and shocked, crying as the media watches and takes a video of them. I don't know what made him think of that. but unless he did something wrong, he could just apply for another job. he must have been depressed for ever experiencing this. probably there's a lot of things that he's thinking when this actually happened. I would never do something like, Life is just too precious for me. i will die but not that way. you're views?

Stupid actually, sweetie. I wonder if he ever thought what would happen to his family before he killed himself? I cannot see why people do that. Don't they know what impact it have on his loved one.s? The least he could have done was try to make his own life better, not take it. TATA.

i have seen that news,knight! and it's hard to lose a loved one just because of that. the man didn't even think of those lives he had left behind. he just think of himself only.and being a father of the house,he should be strong enough for his family.and it's not right to ruin your life just because you have lost your job.theres always hope and we should just have faith.and strive for us to succeed and reach what we have been aiming.

Hello Annavi23, I guess you're right. he wasn't that strong to begin with, i don't know what made him do it, but am so sure it wasn't because of the contract ended. we can't afford to judge him now because only god can do it. i doubt he will ever find peace in his life.

men should be strong enough and be there for their families. cause they are the ones who are there to support for them.it is not right to just end one's life with just a certain failure in life.we should be strong more to survive with our family. what he did is wrong,no matter how we look at it.you maybe right that there are things that made him do that,only God knows it.

It's sad that some people would actually do this. I feel sorry that some feel so sad that they don't see any other way out. Especially since this individual has a wife and child. I really do wonder if he considered them. I'm not trying to sound mean or anything. It's just a thought.

Hello dodo19, for one thing, he's too YOUNG to get married. second, he wasn't mature enough to think straight and not able to handle the situation. so, i don't think you were mean. i think his depression and sadness overthrow his reasoning to think for a solution, that made him kill himself.

some just want an easy escape, life to some it not worth living especially when you don't enjoy it, always troubled and never had the chance to enjoy life. It is rational to some point (in their own silly mind) that ending it is the best or easiest to do. If they were just born different (maybe rich and not troubled much) maybe they can view life as a precious thing to cherish..

Ive watched the news yesterday and seen this news. A man can think to do this things, boost of heartaches and frustration and stress almost always tell us to escape life and kill ourselves. If we breath for a little while and re think what were about to do. Then it might save our life and others future,.. Sadly MAN is sometimes defeated by anger and frustration.

Hello Boyetski, I've heard that he had a fight with his wife and probably the depression causes him to do it. i believe he was defeated by frustration and sadness. so sad for him most specially to the widow and kids he left behind.

I guess these days you really are no longer sure who's stable and who's not. I mean, it doesn't mean that everyone is laughing and you're together than not one of you was depressed. It's sad that it has to come to these things. I am worried for the kids and the wife, I mean, discovering that their father quit life that way when there must have been other ways to conquer such disappointments. Just like that person in the Philippines who decided to take a bus with tourists hostage just to be heard. I mean, someone good would really break apart when depression sets in. I guess this is a very important warning to all of us. We must learn to have a way to handle stress and I guess best friends and good relationships are important these days. The type of relationships with people who you could really talk to without worrying what they would say or if other people knew about it. Just having someone to talk to just would somehow work.

That is really very sad to learn about the man's fate. He should have taken that decision at the least for his kid. Sometimes, people in a hurry take abrupt decisions which they cannot repair. My sympathy for the wife and child. God should show them a good path for their survival.

hello srganesh, I doubt his problem is one of the worse in the world, but if he had pull himself together,then he could have done something about his problem. like looking for a new job and not being too depressed with the one he lost.

This guy must have lost his mind... His act is purely selfish, killing himself might end his problems but will bring endless problems to his family and love ones. Hopefully his family is fine and are able to cope financially without him around.

Hello Asxenon, I know what he did was wrong but judging him won't help. hopefully, his family would move on and start a new life with out him. i think he wasn't mature enough to handle complicated things in life. we should get a chance to help ourselves when ever we are in this situation.

I'm sure it wasn't totally because he lost his job. There might be some deeper reasons associated. I agree with what you said, ending your life for whatever reason is really unacceptable. You are just being escapist if you do this. You are creating a more serious problem if you leave your family in the middle of nowhere. The pain of losing you, plus the struggle of surviving without you will create so much trauma on their end.

Hello ip5217, that's what i thought too.i am sure he has no peace now and her wife would have forced to look for a job. because she has no choice because of his husband couldn't take it. she has relatives there so i think she can gather strength from her relatives.

I don't think that anyone should kill themselves over losing a job. You can always get another one. Also, that job may not have been the best choice for you if you anyway. I have lost several jobs and I never wanted to kill myself over it. It is just a fact of life. You get back on the high horse and look for another one.

Hello Rogue, well, it ain't really that bad. you know there's this one lady who couldn't walked that much, talked normal or move her hands good but she was able to make online sales. the sales that she gets is for her treatment, and then a guy who has no legs, arms, but makes a lot of speech in different countries accross the world..

What a sad news! I am so sorry for this man's family. Being a man is not easy at all. He has responsibilities to afford his family. And he found it hopeless when he lost the job. Because the bad economy, it is not easy to find a job again. He felt so shame because he couldn't bring money to home. Due to many of these reasons, he chose to kill himself. It's so bad.

Hello Youless, Well, being a women is not easy either. Just think about Pregnancy, Menopause, specially menstruation, most specially having these conditions if the woman has worked. i feel bad for them, but a lesson for all of us here that we must live on despite of all the problems in life.

I think, job wasnt the only reason why he did hang himself. Maybe there are some reason that made him to do that. According to his wife, the got a fight before they went to sleep. We dont know the real story, so let just pray for his soul. But I'll definitely not or even think to end my life no matter how big is my problem is. I know there is a way to solve everything. Just hold on to GOD. HE knows everything. Life is too good to end it.

Hello fherfher, What was the reason of that fight? probably he was afraid that his wife would leave him if he doesn't look for a job right away. if that is the case, there's no problem, he could still look for a job. may god give him a chance to redeem himself, but if he's up to damnation, i hope the family he left behind would be able to move on.

Friend, it is sad to know about this but there's really an events like that. We don't blame those people because of more misery that they felt in life...but if they are intelligent enough and have fear with God..they don't do that have a great day!

Hello aerous, Hey, how are you. i believe he's not that miserable since he was still able to get a job compare the last time. i believed he was focused on being depressed than asking god for help. his religion wasn't even mentioned in the news, so we never know. godbless!

Maybe he is too depressed that's why he kill himself. He is thinking on what will happen to them after he loose that job. Yes, he could apply for another job but you know here in the Philippines, it is hard to find a job because there is an age limit. He has a family to feed, maybe he thought that he will have a difficult time to apply for another job.

Hello Grace, I think there is a strong chance for him to get a job again if there was no other problems other than ending his contract. he's young i think he still got a shot at it. maybe he wasn't mature to handle the stress that it led him to kill himself. my dad was at his retirement age, but he made it abroad and able to look for a job there.

Oh, Sometimes our work and our only "hope" lost would really take the best of us - even make us not think straight... do you think that when people commit something as bad as killing themselves mean that they are like in some kind of a demonic or bad spirit possesion? I really do not know but i think it could be that, too!

hello Letran, There is only one reason for killing oneself,it's insanity. It's hard to judge someone unless we are on their shoe,but,if we had faith in GOD,there is no reason to kill ourself. There is always solution for every problems and there is always a good reason for all the trials and sufferings that we encounter in this life. We only need to believe in ourselves and hold on to our faith. This is very sad,and more for his family

Hello Jaiho, I didn't think he could handle it first hand. i agree, there's always a solution, unless he believes he couldn't apply for a job anymore, i think there's still a chance that he could still do it. that's true that god can help us either way, we shouldn't give up.

Wow so sorry for him. What would makes he think he had no tomorrow? Once we are cornered in life the only way out now is up front, we have to move foward. If he passed that moment he would have realized how much courage he had, cause most of the time courage is just a little seed that we never watered and we see it grow in a crisis.

Hello katie, i believe there was something else but i guess he couldn't bear to live with it.nor tell his family about it. i think he has a job and could have applied to other fast food chains even though he has ended his contract. I wonder, he didn't get terminated for bad behavior. even those who are terminated gets to have a new job. maybe he wasn't that aggressive.

It is sad to note that he decided to end his life that way. I am not in the position to judge the person. But all I can say is that ending a life is not the solution to a problem. For as long as there is life, there is always hope. Somehow, he could be carrying a lot of burden in his mind and life which lead him to decide to end his life. Let us hope that his family will eventually make it through despite the loss.

Hello jpso, you're right. none of us had the position to judge the person. but some how, i believe he wasn't mature enough to handle the situation and that prompted him to kill himself in the process. i hope this serves a lesson to us that it takes maturity to have a family.
