Barron sent me this video and I thought it warranted its own post outside of the standard “Gun Death” serial.
Overall its a very respectful, but a bit melancholy documentary on people who killed themselves on the Golden Gate Bridge. They do a good job at letting the family air their grievances and celebrate the lives of their loved one. Also has the story of one man who survived jumping, and a few people who were foiled in their attempt to end their lives.
Now I’m not going to talk any more about the movie as a whole, its a good film, and you should watch it.
Now in the context of this blog and “Gun Death”, one thing I noticed as consistency in all these stories was A) Mental Illness, and B) most of the people planned this for months if not years.
Suicide is a horrible thing, and the movie made me sad, but its very obvious that it was the person, not the method or tool.
