The winner of the most influential film of all time goes to The Life of David Gale. After seeing this movie it forever changed my life. For those of you who have not seen the film please beware that this will spoil the movie for you.. Sacrifice for the greater good is harder to do then most anything in this world. Capital punishment is a controversial subject matter that people either feel strongly one way or the other. I’m not here to discuss the issue of being for or against the death penalty, I here to discuss the sacrifice of David Gale and Constance Harraway.
Constance Harraway wanted to die because she was already suffering from a form of leukemia that was terminal. She staged her suicide to look like a murder for a cause. She believed in something so deeply that she took her death sentence and turned it into a powerful cause. David Gale wanted to prove that what seems to be true may not. Society is willing to kill a person because all the facts point to a solid case. He wanted to show that there is room for human error and sometimes the consequence of this human error leads to death.
As stated earlier this inspired me. I believe to suffer from Borderline Personality Disorder. This disorder is difficult to diagnose and even more difficult to treat. It leads to dire consequences such as alienating everyone in your life and not being able to form any type of relationship. Treatment is extremely expensive and more often then not, not curable. In an essence I have a terminal disease. I can’t hold a job, or have close family members, or friends. I am suffering alone and sometimes violent. I tried to fight my dad a couple of weeks ago and he ended up having to strangle me, almost to death. I didn’t see it that way but that is another part of the disorder. Therefore I’m out of options. I believe that people should fight for what they believe in and I believe that mental illness is as severe as having a disease like cancer. No one looks at it like this but it seems that if people did then there would be less mass shootings and suicides. I really know anyone or have any friends which is why I’m telling you, the people I appreciate reading my blog.
Therefore tonight at 12:00 am I am going to end my life. This will benefit my loved ones in that they will no longer suffer because of me. I would ask that people take all mental illness as a disorder that needs more than just talking to fix it. There needs to be away to cure it with surgery or medication. If more people understood what causes these disorders and that there must be a part of the brain that functions incorrectly and be fixed. If Steve Jobs can see light years into the future and visualize the I pod, then why can’t someone make it possible to survive mental illness?
Too many people are dying because mental illness is a disease that needs a cure.
