This is the LinkedIn profile screenshot of a man who killed his wife and then committed suicide two weeks ago. The man, 33-year-old Jason Montes, was a writer for a game company. His 25-year-old wife, Serena, was a pastry chef. Jason Montes had declared bankruptcy and the couple had planned to divorce. The weapon was a military service pistol stolen from Mr.Montes' parents.

Times are tough. Microsoft just laid off 5,000 people and there is talk of more cuts. The company that my husband works for just laid off 30 in a small organization. He is looking at a pay slash. However, there is no reason to be so despondent as to kill oneself or another. Stay connected to the world even if it seems everything around you has come unglued because tomorrow might be better. And you will never know unless you stick around.
