    Default Suicide Mistaken for Halloween Decoration

    Suicide Mistaken for Halloween Decoration
    By Associated Press

    FREDERICA, Del. - The apparent suicide of a woman found hanging from a tree went unreported for hours because passers-by thought the body was a Halloween decoration, authorities said.

    The 42-year-old woman used rope to hang herself across the street from some homes on a moderately busy road late Tuesday or early Wednesday, state police said.

    The body, suspended about 15 feet above the ground, could be easily seen from passing vehicles.

    State police spokesman Cpl. Jeff Oldham and neighbors said people noticed the body at breakfast time Wednesday but dismissed it as a holiday prank. Authorities were called to the scene more than three hours later.

    "They thought it was a Halloween decoration," Fay Glanden, wife of Mayor William Glanden, told The (Wilmington) News Journal.

    "It looked like something somebody would have rigged up," she said.

    EXACTLY! They take their "exit" and leave all their loved ones behind to have to deal with the pain and the confusing questions for the rest of their lives. I hope I'm not offending anyone that has lost a loved one to suicide, but in my opinion, it's one of the most selfish things a person can do---even though many times the person feels as though they are doing everyone a favor by "checking out." What a sad story. My sister-in-law was telling me about a haunted house she used to go to in high school. She said there was a dad of one of her friends that used to "hang himself" with a noose, as part of the haunted house. They had it rigged to where it wouldn't actually cut off the man's circulation...BUT...one year something went wrong and it started choking him. Luckily someone was close by and he was able to wave his arms to get their attention. I believe that was the last time that stunt was pulled!

    I know where Frederica, Delaware is. I used to drive that whole state. It's one of those one-light little towns, HARDCORE hicksville, (it SERIOUSLY belongs in a Stephen King novel) and not a joke, everyone knows everyone, and they dont even like the tourists traveling through there. (Although, oddly enough, all the NASCAR fans traveling North to Dover Downs seem to fit in... hey, thats a joke!)

    PS-This shows the intelligence of the people there, this is why below mid-state is referred to as 'slower, lower Delaware.'

    Then why do some leave notes? This whole suicide thing is confusing to me. Don't these people realize there is NO tomorrow or 10 years from now for them? Shit gets better if you want it too. (I am not ignorant to this matter, and I know some people are just fucked up.) BUT, why leave a note if you do not care in some way?
    Just go for it!

    For some people, life is simply too painful and their minds and emotions are so damaged they cant see beyond the black hole that they're in. It doesn't mean they don't care for the ones left behind, some leave notes to tie up loose ends before they die. Others believe that they are harming those they love and feel they would be better off without them.

    I don't get it. I have had some really BAD times in my life, and suicide never entered my mind. I just don't think those people realize that this is it, and if you off yourself, you have eliminated the experince of living. It's pain, happiness, adventure...hell, it's everything.

    I heard this somewhere, and I don't remember where...What's the meaning of life? That is the most idiotic question I have ever heard. That's like asking what's the meaning of a cup of coffee? Just live. It's the only shot you have; make it the best that you can.
