Today was a ruff day at the East Valley Tribune. In my outlook mailbox was the all-edit e-mail to the editorial staff. Former Arts and Entertainment writer Chris Page was found dead in his apartment late Sunday. Page was 29 years old. It's was apparently a suicide.
My God, I have been through this before with a very close friend. It is something that a rational person cannot explain or justify. For suicide to be a better choice than life, a person must be in a very dark place. We all have had our ups and downs and possible bouts with depression. But there is alway tomorrow and there always hope for those who seek it. Chris was laid off from the Tribune 2 weeks ago. God speed bro!
