so I found out yesterday that a former coworker of mine committed suicide.  He was a fairly classic, “live hard, die young” personality that had a run-in with the police, and wound up ending his own life.

What do we do with an aimless generation..?  So committed the future, and with more resources than any previous people group, we are driven to out-run and out-play our forbears, amusing ourselves to death as the realization slowly dawns that NONE of what we have or can purchase, or hope to procure fills the void in ourselves OR mends the rifts in society.  The poor still starve, the rich still ignore, and our souls are still lonely.

I feel bad for his family.
