If he truly wanted to make the "world a better place for children"...he would not have jumped in front of a train causing unbeleivable stress to those passengers on the train, not to mention the poor engineer of the train. What about his family he left behind? How selfish! No sympathy here. If you want to take your life, do it in a manner that does not hurt innocent bystanders. I live behind the tracks and saw the carnage.

Disgusted, Has it occurred to you that someone who would jump in front of a train might be so enshrouded in a blanket of clinical depression or other form of mental illness that he is incapable of considering all those things you mention? I'm terribly sad for his family and those who had to witness his death and the aftermath. But to so harshly and absolutely judge a person for his last, desperate act without knowing what mental torment or illness prompted the act is cruel and arrogant in the extreme.

Imagine what a lovely community this would be if we all gave each other the benefit of the doubt every once in a while.
