My brother shot himself in the head on May 5, 1975. He was 22 years old. Back in those days, we didn’t have Prozac or other anti-depressants to bring people out of the depths. He couldn’t see past his problems.

That’s what causes suicide. The inability to see past the right now.

About Me

An English diarist and naval administrator. I served as administrator of the Royal Navy and Member of Parliament. I had no maritime experience, but I rose to be the Chief Secretary to the Admiralty under both King Charles II and King James II through patronage, diligence, and my talent for administration. Also archivist and avid fan of The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature.
