I have just read from newspaper about the suicide story of Tyler Hilinkski, a 21 year old college football team Quarterback of Washington State University. It is reported that there are 1/3 of college students have experience of depression and melancholy at some point. This ratio is close to national average of the age group. Let’s hope Hilinski’s tragedy raise higher social concern for the importance of mental, emotional health care. Let’s pray more awareness and support be provided to these young people during their trouble ridden years of growing pain. WSU Hall of Famer Paul Sorensen wrote a powerful column about shining a light on mental health. He concluded with these words:
Please don’t ever forget Tyler Hilinksi. Thirty years from now, people need to be talking about him — not in sorrow because a life of so much promise was cut short, but because he triggered a firestorm of conversation that changes how we talk with each other and how we talk about mental health.
Tyler Hilinski was young, gifted and loved by family, friends and teammates, all of whom are searching for a reason for his death. His coach said, “He was, honestly, a very steady guy.” The reports said Hilinski has no sign of depression before death. The report told of Hilinski as a willing listener for others, as when driving a teammate to counseling, but noted how Hilinski didn’t share likewise.
First of all, Hilinkski was found dead by shooting himself with a rifle. This again brings me to the issue of gun. In this fast paced modern society, all sort of life pressure tend to bring out the worst in people. Some of them resort to violence to either themselves or others using the gun. In these past few years, there are numerous human tragedy caused by gun shooting. Gun violence has post serious threat to the security of society, we strongly hope a new law be passed to prohibit public owning guns.
Secondly, let’s agree that Astrology can only reflect life, not cause it. Astrology helps us identify the ways we create our own problems and cause unhappiness in our life and those around us. Although Astrology often able to give insight to one’s psychological makeup for certain behavior, it is not able to predict death. Evolutionary Astrology assumes that people are given opportunity to learn evolutionary lessons coming to this life. Life is not suppose to be easy, although for some of us, the struggle is harder than others, and for some period of time, thing can harder than other times. But the choice of free will is to confront our problem and to master the lessons by overcoming the blockages.
Hilinkski was born only a month later than Jennifer Gates. He has many strength in his character like that of Jennifer Gates. In addition, he had a Earth grand trine indicating a nature flow of steady character. Alas, there several important signatures pointing to a disturbing tendency of frustration in difficulty for self-acceptance and getting affection from others. The following is just a few signals.
