In the early hours of Wednesday 19th, 2017 we learned of the apparent suicide of former NFL athlete Aaron Hernandez. This was deeply disturbing as we just learned that he was found not guilty of the shooting deaths of two men in South Boston. Whilst I refrain to comment on the circumstances around his legal case. I will say that I find this "suicide" deeply suspect.
If we take a look back to our Holy divine texts, we learn stories of men / women who had committed murders and crimes, yet when they decided to repent and seek the mercy of God they were forgiven. Hernandez may have / have not committed the crimes, but a human being deserves to be respected. His apparent "suicide" should once again alert and raise the consciousness of society. What is happening? Why is this happening?
I am also going to continue to say "suspect and suspicious suicide" because when you listen to CNN news, and then read other news sources you will learn and hear varying perspectives. CNN have viewed Hernandez as someone who was troubled and depressed, other news sources revealing public reaction of sorrow and once a gain a are deeply hurt society. One that begins to question why, revealing how news sources are brought and paid for by various individuals who want to sway public thoughts. With a slight hope of being re-united with your family, you have now been re-united in spirit.
Our sincere condolences to family, friends & loved ones, rest in peace, rest in love.
