Oh my, this is horrible. Was this Susie Selby's son. If so, I have known them for along time since he was a little boy.

R.I.P. James. We love you.

James Selby Senseless Death

On Thursday morning, James Selby lost his home to a fire. As it would anyone, he was distraught in seeing his possessions go up in flames. The next day, James apparently took his own life.

Reflecting on other tragedies in this county, we've seen instant response and hundreds of thousands of dollars raised to help someone or some family in need. Businesses gave items for auctions, churches took up love offerings, groups were formed to help make sure every detail was covered. T-shirts
and caps were made to recognize the event and the list goes on.

I knew of James Selby but I didn't know him personally. Maybe I'm partially to blame for not being the first person to come forward.

To all these benefit planners and so-called church going Christians who are suppose to share love and compassion, where was it Thursday? Where was it Friday when God only knows what was going through James' mind in the moments before he gave up?

Where was the churches with high steeples and better than thou members who flaunt their cash and fine clothes
? Where was the clothing centers and consignment shops to give this family clothes? Where was love?

Did this family have food and shelter after the fire? Did they have someone to encourage them and show love and compassion?

To those who did even the smallest thing, I say thank you. To the rest of us, we should be ashamed. Personally, I know nothing about starting a benefit or raising money, but there are people here who are good at those type things who could have done something.

Sure, raising money takes time and probably couldn't be done in less than 24 hours, but there could have been massive show of support that might have saved a man's life.

More than likely, James died alone, thinking there was no hope.

Today his family is grieving. They've lost their home, husband and dad
...maybe brother, uncle or friend. Their world is crumbling.

You're such an idiot. Most people would be sad to see all of their things lost to a fire, but home owner's insurance and community support can help rebuild and begin again in no time. That man had to be depressed in a serious way about something other than losing mere possessions.
oh my

You are the idiot and certainly no saint posting this poison on here. How can you be so presumptuous to know whether he had fire insurance on his trailer and contents, or what degree community support was available to him this time of year ?

why do some of you always put down the churches? i,ve seen so much done for people from the churches than you would dream possible and without my church friends i,d die of hopelessness ,they go beyond their call of duty and i think probably you are not acquainted with any church and dont know what they do you had rather run them down and when you speak of them you are talking about Gods annointed .
sorry for you and i hope and pray this christmas season you will think about God and where you want to spend eternity
please give this some thoght
merry christmas and may GOd open your eyes before its to late
,he does love and care for you

God doesn't give you anything you cant handle you people like to say. Seems god gave this guy too much to handle or we can face the truth that there is no god.

It's the most wonderful time of the year
With the kids jingle belling
And everyone telling you "Be of good cheer"
It's the most wonderful time of the year
It's the hap-happiest season of all
With those holiday greetings and gay happy meetings
When friends come to call
It's the hap- happiest season of all

There'll be parties for hosting
Marshmallows for toasting
And caroling out in the snow
There'll be scary ghost stories
And tales of the glories of
Christmases long, long ago

It's the most wonderful time of the year
There'll be much mistltoeing
And hearts will be glowing
When love ones are near
It's the most wonderful time of the year

The man did what he needed to do good or bad.don't bash each other that just won't help anyone.Help the ones he left behind who need help , leave God out of it and do it because you want to help.The pain is in the ones that live ,death will take care of it's own and may it be gentle. And everyone have a wonderful Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

God doesn't offend me it's self ritgeous hipocrites that think god should kiss their rear ends.EVERYONE SHOULD STEP UP AND NOT PRAY FOR GOD TO HELP BUT TAKE IT UPON THEIR SELF TO DO THE HELPING.GOD NEEDS HELP HE CAN ONLY DO HIS JOB WITH YOUR HELP.STEP UP QUIT RUNNING OTHER PEOPLE DOWN WITH YOUR SELF WORTH AND DO SOMETHING WITH YOUR SOUL AND NOT YOUR MOUTH.FREE WILL IS YOURS LET EVERYONE BELIEVE THRIR OWN WAY .YOU SHOULD LET GOD JUDGE BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT WORTHY.MERRY CHRISTMAS I MUST LEAVE NOW AND FOREVER.
