Don Harman, died; it's rumored it was a suicide. He leaves behind a wife and a small daughter. He was forty-one years old.
The guy was always laughing and cutting up with the Fox 4 gang. You would have taken him to be one of the happiest people in the world.
Now I'm reading that he had been battling with depression. Cliff asked me, "What could he have to be depressed about?"
Of course, Cliff knows as well as I do that you don't have to have a reason to be depressed; clinical depression sometimes occurs simply because the body's chemistry is out of whack.
I wonder if S.A.D. (wintertime depression) entered into this at all.
I wonder how the morning crew at Fox 4 held it together today.
I wonder how Don's family is holding up.
I wonder if perhaps the rumor I've heard is false. (Nope, this article confirms it.)
I wonder how many others around me are struggling with depression, perhaps even someone who seems to be the life of the party.
