So often academic and skill full brilliance is coupled with tragedy.
Many brilliant people with talent have also struggled with personal problems and demons. So I wonder what on earth led two brilliant students to commit suicide together on a suicide pact.
These two friends who were described as intelligent rigged up a laptop to deliver lethal injections to them both.
This is incredibly sad, what is even more so is that not only did they buy into the euthanasia idea but that they took part despite the fact that they appeared to be perfectly healthy. Physically at least.
I am still on the fence about euthanasia, however surely the idea of physically healthy people looking into suicide with no prior motives other than getting the idea from someone (in this case that someone is Dr. Philip Nitschke - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_Nitschke )
This is incredibly worry, and incredibly sad as well.
Regardless, may they both rest in peace.
