The Younger Brother Just Got Engaged, and Had a Car Wreck, Became Depressed, Could This Be Why He’d Committed Suicide?

Here’s a little BIT more about the family, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

The brothers the Chens who committed suicide yesterday, because their father died when they were real young, their mother left home, and they were given to their grandparents who were farmers to raise, after the tragedies, everybody who knew them felt very sad over the matter.  The distant regions in Nantou are filled with these cross generation upbringings, and the problems that will arise out of these families are becoming more and more alarming for the society.

This May, the grandmother who was diagnosed with hypertension was found dead in the tea plantation, and the siblings who were so reliant on her had felt a harder blow than everybody else did.  The neighbors all told, that the siblings were very courteous toward others regularly, the older brother works as a chef, and the youngest just got out of the armed services and was engaged in May.  And, based off of understanding, back in May, the younger brother had a car accident, and had disclosed how strained he felt because of the matter, and asked the grandparents to stop worrying, but, it still didn’t stop this tragedy from happening.

The Lifeline Foundation CEO of Nantou, Lu said, that there are many incidences of cross-generation upbringing in the distant regions in Nantou, a lot of the grandparents who “raised their grandkids up” all claimed, “we’re only responsible for keeping them fed and warmly dressed, it is difficult, for us to instill the right kinds of values in them”.  In families that are well economically, getting the kids fed was hard enough, and so, nobody can blame these grandparents.  “These two brothers just met a fork in their roads, and couldn’t pass through it, it’s really heart aching”, Lu believed, that the MOST important matter, is how to help counsel these families out of their difficult times.

And so, this tragic accident is still a combination of how the young men wouldn’t tell anyone about their troubled minds, and the LACK of the supports from the government, and the lack of resources, to offer them the assistance that they were needing, is all involved, in the causing of these two young men’s deaths, and yet, this, is still ALL hindsight…
