Adventures of a Modern Day, Middle-Aged Hero, on the Glory Road(to family security)


Sad head shake.

I don't get it.  It seems awfully early to judge, but the early evidence is pointing to the fact the co-pilot of a Germanwings flight deliberately crashed his plane into the French Alps earlier this week, killing all 150 people on board. 

Nobody is throwing the 'T' word around yet, so for right now, it's looking like a suicide run. 

I'm not a religious person, and I highly support 'right to die' policies.  Heck...I even support it if you aren't terminally ill.  If you decide you are tired of life, and are selfish enough that you don't care about what your absence will mean to your family and friends, and you want to suck start a 12ga, or lock yourself in the garage with a running car, or drink a bottle of whisky and eat a bottle of Valium...go for it.  Just lay down a tarp first so people don't have to clean up your mess.

But...how...HOW can things be so wrong in your life, and your mind, that you feel the need to take 150 people out with you?  That blows my mind.  Terrifying.  I almost hope that they do find some terrorism connection...at least then there would be some cause behind this(however fracked up that cause might be.)  Better still would have been the co-pilot stabbing himself in the steak knife before the plane took off....
