My cousin committed suicide. I have yet to hear the details, don't know if I want to, that he did it is sad enough.

Billy was a national motorcycle racing champion and survived an accident in which he was speared from right pelvis through his trunk, up to his left collar bone and out his chest. He lost portions of a couple organs. It didn't stop him though. You never would've guessed that such a thing happened. In his life he kept going as if it never happened.

The person I am thinking the most about is his mom though. It's got to be hard. I want to go now and give my condolences, but I just got the news via answering machine and it's 11PM.

Funny, when I first typed the sentence "Billy was a national..." I typed 'David' who was a very close friend who killed himself wen I was in highschool. I don't understand it. I know out of context that suicide is the most selfish act a person can commit. Being so self involved that they are blind to their importance to others. I can't think like that right now. I just want to be sad.

I've got to teach a class tomorrow. I'm not feeling very genki, nor aiki. I wish I had a little more time to just sit and be for a while.
