I honestly don't know what I believe when it comes to stuff like that. Sometimes, I see it as a coward's way out, but other times I can understand where that person is coming from.
I knew an older gentleman from a nearby town. He'd had so many little skin cancers cut off of his face and ears over the years that he was horribly deformed. He was leary of going out in public because of the stares and the fact that he often scared little kids. For about the last 2 years of his life, he refused to even leave his house; his son would bring him groceries and run all his errands for him. I guess one day he had had enough and ended his life. This guy was one of the sweetest, most honorable men you could ever hope to meet, a true gentleman. I don't believe that he would go to hell for making a choice like that. You know, people always say that God would never put us through more than we can withstand? Well, I don't think God has much to do with what we go through and whether or not we can stand it. I think it is more the luck of the draw. In the words of Forrest Gump "**** happens". Just sometimes, a whole lot of **** happens to one person and they end up buried.
Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
