What Happened?

I've been watching the story of Terrell Owens unfold all day. It appears that one of three things have occurred regarding this drama. Either T.O. really tried to kill himself and now there is a huge coverup OR there was some horrible media reports that were false OR there was some bad police work last night in Dallas.

I hope that he did not try to kill himself. It would be horrible if the people around him know that he is mentally ill, yet they are trying to cover it up to save the image of this man. If he is suicidal, he needs help.

I know that many of you do not like TO, but he is still human. I really hope that he is not suicidal. For those of you from Alabama... Do you remember when I would have TO drive the school bus in the mornings? He was always one of my favorite bus drivers! I wonder what the folks in Alex City, AL are thinking today...

Anywho, those are my thoughts on the subject. For more on the life of TO... checkout this link. It's very interesting.

Feel free to share your thoughts in the "comments" section.

I'm with you, Ryan - TO might act like a complete jerk but I believe most of it stems from some very serious self-worth issues. It would not surprise me at all if he did try to kill himself. I hope that his family & friends will support him and protect him and get him the help he needs. Better yet, maybe I'm wrong and everything is fine.

There's been a suicide that's hit close to some friends of mine in the last couple of days. A young guy and his wife visited our Sunday School class just a few weeks ago. Now he has left a young wife and 3 year old son. So sad.

Threats of suicide are serious. Maybe TO's situation will bring some light to the issue and make people more aware of the people around them.
