I was shocked to wake uo to this news on my phone. First Kate Spade, now Anthony Burdain. There is a definite need for God, for hope, in this world.

Belleza, I was very shocked also. He seemed to have The perfect Life. UsA suicide rate is Rising

“WASHINGTON (AFP) - The suicide rate across the United States has risen 30 per cent since 1999, and nearly 45,000 people took their lives in 2016, officials said Thursday (June 7).

Suicide presents a "growing public health problem," with significant increases in 44 of the 50 states, said the report by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Earlier this week, American handbag designer Kate Spade, 55, took her own life, sparking renewed calls for mental health awareness and suicide prevention.”

Such sad news. I recently watched Parts Unknown, Armenia. It was a great show about the food and the culture and so much more, including the Armenian Genocide. Anthony Bourdain was very talented yet down-to-earth. He will be missed by many.
