First and foremost thank you for sharing. I agree that there is never an excuse. That being said, extreme mental illness is getting worse in this country and around the world.

And as for all you "rot in hell" posts.. The last time I checked, most religions believe one sin is no worse then another. Another words Stealing and or using gods name in vain is no different then murder.
Again not sa
