So I can’t believe that Kate Spade (55) committed suicide — Hanging.

What an amazing fashion designer — so much to live for!

Famous for her gorgeous handbags (that used to be the business my dad was in too).

Her net worth was $150,000,000!

Why does someone so beautiful, successful, rich, and famous take their life???

Ultimately, none of these things make happy or meaning in life!

Still, it is incredibly hard to understand seemingly having so much and throwing your life away — unless of course, we consider terrible things like severe depression and other horrible illnesses that can break anyone.

Yet, there seem to be so many of these hugely successful people that take or lose their lives so young and with still so much to give the world:

Alan Turing (41) — Cyanide

Alexander McQueen (40) — Hanging

Amy Winehouse (27) — Alcohol

Chris Benoit (40) — Broken Neck

Christine Chubbuck (29) — Shooting

Dana Plato (34) — Overdose

Ernest Hemingway (61) — Shooting

Jerzy Kosinski (57) — Overdose

Kurt Cobain (27) — Shooting

L’Wren Scott (49) — Hanging

Lucy Gordon (28) — Hanging

Marilyn Monroe (36) — Overdose

Michael Jackson (50) — Overdose

Mike Alfonso (42) — Hanging

Prince (57) — Overdose

Robbin Williams (63) — Hanging

Sawyer Sweeten (19) — Shooting

Sylvia Plath (30) — Gas Oven

Vincent Van Gogh (37) — Shooting

Virginia Woolf (59) — Drowning

Whitney Houston (48) — Drowning

G-d should have mercy and help to take away the pain and suffering from people so that they can live and not die prematurely anymore. ;-)
