      Interesting Disney connection in the article.

      The Canadian tourists were interviewed by police and remained at the scene for about an hour. Church officials said they were headed to Disneyland later in the day.

        MANY Disney guests visit the Crystal Cathedral on their vacation...

        Another weird twist, Chick-Fil-A is having a convention in Anaheim, and had planned a tour for 750 guests to the cathedral yesterday afternoon, which had to be cancelled. (If you don't know, Chick-Fil-A is a very religious company, and keeps all its stores closed on Sunday, so its employees can spend the day in worship).

            Note, this is a Serious issue, and while I am not one, there are at least a couple of folks that call Crystal Cathedral their ministry here at MiceChat.

            A person took his own life, and hopefully he found his peace with God just before he took his life...

            I think some sensitivity is just common sense.

                I'm just thankful that he didn't take anyone else out with him...

                There's a school there too. I'm glad that none of the kids were around to see/hear it.

                  Both of my brothers in law committed suicide. It's VERY, VERY distressing for anyone present or anyone who it affects, such as friends and family. My heart really goes out to the persons who were in the Crystal Cathedral and saw this horrible act, and, for his family and friends. What a tragic life he must have had.

                    This is the most disturbing thing I have heard of, killing yourself at a church, in front of people. So scary. And its all because of our economy. They said he was in a bit of financial troubles.

                      when the stock market crashed in 1929 there were a lot of suicides. It's sad some people feel that is the only solution.

                        so many people do this act every day, we just don't hear about it, which initself is sad in my opinion.
                        You know how close this subject is to my heart at the moment. I'm havingh to deal with those left behind

                          I have a former student that goes to that school. Hopefully the kids didn't hear anything.

                            How sad
                            Good morning, son
                            In twenty years from now
                            Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                            And I can tell you 'bout today
                            And how I picked you up and everything changed
                            It was pain
                            Sunny days and rain
                            I knew you'd feel the same things...
