Country music star Mindy McCready was found dead Sunday at her home in Arkansas from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, the local sheriff's office said in a statement. She was 37.
Very young age to commit suicide, RIP
I am against any terrorist acts committed under the name of Islam

Absolutely tragic for this to occur. I feel like suicide is one of those dirty things that society pushes under the rug; put in the too hard basket due to the myriad of causes and sheer impossibility of a cure. At least with cancer there's something to strive for; for crippling depression that leads to suicide, no drug will help and it so often happens to the most marginalised in society.

You have to be very courageous to self-inflict a gunshot wound. It doesn't look pretty at all.
Courageous or depressed? When you're that depressed you'll do whatever.

McCready had serious problems with drugs, a well publicised custody dispute as to one of children over the last 10 years and an ex- who died under unusual circumstances. Despite her serious problems, she had access to a gun. One has to suspect she had serious underlying issues with her mental and psychological health that probably led to her drug use and now taking her life. She had been a significant Country music star, especially among women, in the mid-1990's and recently had been touring. Now her children don't have their mother, a mother has lost her child.

First off, who cares that she killed a dog.. it's a dog and shouldn't even be discussed it's so unimportant.
Second, what makes this so sad is the fact that she has young children. They are the real losers in this. If someone doesn't have children, I don't really care what they do to themselves. But to leave your children in this manner is just unthinkable and beyond selfish.
I couldn't take my life because I would fear the ramifications as I stand before my creator. I hope she rests in peace since I know she has had a lot of issues, but a very selfish and detrimental act.

Quoting connies4ever (Reply 7): Who was Mindy McCready ? Never heard of her. Any suicide, though, is a tragedy on a family level.
Youtube her. She was a very popular country music singer in the mid 1990's with several hits like "Ten Thousand Angels," Guys Do It All The Time," "Maybe He'll Notice Her Now," and "A Girl's Gotta Do What a Girl's Gotta Do." I remember when she came onto the scene. The chorus to her first hit song now is a bit more poignant, and morbid.
Lead me not into temptation
Heaven help me to be strong
I can fight all that I'm feeling
But I can't do it alone
Help me break this spell that I'm under
Guide my feet and hold me tight
I need ten thousand angels
Watching over me tonight

Ah. Country. That would explain it. IMHO, country isn't music, it's just caterwauling. Grunge isn't music either, nor head banging. I don't pay any attention to any of it.

Healthy and 37. Nope, there is no excuse. If it comes out that she was about to die a horrible death I could understand it. A little bullshit in life when you are still pretty much a child in many ways.... No, it's not right.
What is it with all the "is there a possibilty airline X will.." threads? The answer it'll is possible.

I don't think so. You have to be totally depressed and selfish knowing you are leaving two kids behind who have to live with the fact their mother blew her head off.

A lot of people DFW. Dogs usually don't deserve the cruelty that some of them get. Where as people quite often do things to themselves to bring it on. I feel sorry for the dog and kids. Not so much for Mindy.

Right, I'm Michael Vick.
The point here is that people are more concerned with a dog than that of human.. things like this are totaling corrupting the human race.
I don't condone things Vick did; however, it is not wrong to kill animals. It's sad with everyone so concerned about an animal. People need to be more concerned with people and not give such a damn about a pet. It's sicking when people are so attached to their animals and call them "their babies" or "their family". Get over it. It's a an animal. I like animals, but we need to focus on the tragedy here and that is Mindy's children... not stupid dog.
