"Whether tis nobler to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune...." I was watching a story on A&E yesterday about this 19 year old kid who apparently got the crap beat out of him on a daily basis by his grandfather. Said grandfather also repeatedly beat and raped the boy's mother (his own daughter), beat the boy's grandmother, and the boy's sister. Grandad started making moves toward the sister. After one particularly brutal beating, when the boy was 19, the boy, a friend of his, and his stepfather shot and killed granddad while he was sleeping. The psychologist hired by the defense said that people can feel trapped in a situation, and murder seems the only way out. Now, that's just not true. Neil from "Dead Poets Society" demonstrated that aptly. When is suicide understandable? Even forgivable? When your physical pain becomes so unbearable as to make simply living hell on earth, I'd give that. But what level of psychological suffering must one reach before it's okay to off oneself?
