For someone to want to set fire to herself, she is already not sound in the mind. And to do it twice? She either has something really vengenful towards the church. Or she was so traumatised she could not think of doing anything else other than burning herself in front of the church to make her statement. After the first time she attempted to burn herself, how come no one look into her case? I wonder how far apart are the two attempts. Sigh... may her soul rest in peace!

i dont know how far the two attempts were since i never even heard about the first one till the 2nd time happened and its in my town!! if it was a short time period between them i think some one dropped the ball in making sure she got help and follow up after the hospital etc.

That's horrible, moonlit! Of all the ways to do away with yourself that would be the last on my list. Evidently the woman was unbalanced. I was unable to link up to the story, but I will search for it elsewhere.

the links working now if that was the problem.. it happened at Grace Evangelical Church. in nashville tennessee so if you wanted to do a search on it.. doesnt give her name so i guess you will have to look for some one that set themselves on fire 2 times.. hopefully that wouldnt be a problem since i hope shes the only one that has done that!

She killed herself twice! now that's bad! Maybe it was a bad message that day or something.. some people do some strange things in public places.

god her life must have been horrible!! i dont know if she actually went into the church because it didnt say if she was a member etc.. which makes it weirder to me.

Good gosh! You'd think she'd learn the first time!! That's a heck of a painful way to leave this world but apparently she didn't want to stick around but she could've choosen an easier way out. I know a guy who was burned horribly and was hospitalized for 6 weeks and then my fiance was killed when our house burnt to the ground so I know a thing or two about fires because I've been through 5 of them in my lifetime.

It's awful to hear of such stories. It's too bad that no one could have done anything to help her. It's a terrible way to go, if you ask me.

i think setting yourself on fire had to have been the most horrible and painful choice and to think she chose it twice!! she must have been really tortured inside

It's interesting that there isn't more to the article. It's so sad. Life isn't that bad. Sure, we all go through are times when we think we aren't gonna make it, but we always come out of it. That's the beauty of being human if you ask me. It's part of what makes life interesting. Don't get me wrong, I don't like the bad times. Matter of fact, I dispise them, but I still think they make for interesting conversation. A pastor once said, "If you never needed healing, you'd never know God was a healer"

It's horrible to hear that! But I guess we never going to find out why she did that. Like you said it could be a statement against religion which is to me the most logical reason for doing that. I mean I totally despise it, just sharing my opinion with you and trying to understand why people do that.

i would think if she was a member there they would have stated it so its weird for a stranger to just pick a church and do that without it having something to do with religion
