William, I understand compltely where you are coming from, but yoy can't protect the world, however much you want to, people are always going to be people. My particular group of friends lost a special Seti buddy some years ago, and I am sure that even now they think could they have done more, but probably they couldn't have. But it still makes you wonder.

Never blame yourself, William! When people like that have something in their head, there's not a person in the world who can do a thing to stop them!

And then you see somebody posting suicide notices, and then they stop posting and thier rigs fall silent.
And you think 'did I do everything I could'? and you call in favours and find their nummber but it's silent too and nobosy answers to email.
And you think 'are they gone?' and you ask yourself whether you shouldn't have tried that call earlier...

I grieve for you stranger...

I have some of the same thoughts when I get notice that a friend or Shipmate I haven't seen or spoken to in a while has died. Why did I not know they were ill? Why didn't I call them for so long? Sometimes, other things seem more important, more pressing, and I think "Next week, when things slow down a little, I'll call them", but next week something else comes up, and ....

And you wonder. But you can't live like that. Time and Life move only forward, you can't go back and redo, or undo - what's done is done. You recognize your mistakes, ask for forgiveness, forgive yourself, and try to do better next time.

Since none of us was watching, he'll have looked in and decided that the party had moved on.
[it hasn't moved to the pun thread though, I'm still trying to locate that one...]edit: it's on page 4 not having been posted to in 105 days. We live in punless days...

there beside the wall.

Which wall though? That wall? The other wall? The garden wall?
