You didn't know #AnthonyBourdain. You know nothing about his life, torments, demons, nothing. You didn't know #KateSpade either. Watch the torrents of albeit genuine but odd shows of public grief to two complete strangers but nothing for the 20 vets who commit suicide daily.
You want to mourn #suicide? Mourn this. In 2013, the US Department of Veterans Affairs released a study that covered suicides from 1999 to 2010: roughly 22 veterans were dying by suicide per day, or one every 65 minutes. Some suggest that this rate may be undercounting suicides.
I was born 8 days before #BobbyKennedy was shot. My mother was still in hospital post-Caesarean; she heard the news on telly. For me, #RFK50, #MLK, #JFK are behind me, but cast a long shadow. To quote Meatloaf, objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are. 1/
When I was young, I wanted to know everything about the Kennedys and MLK, these men whose loss traumatised my parents' generation. I'll remember a PE teacher saying, 'Of course we're here. We killed the greatest leaders we had.' JFK's and MLK's losses broke my heart, but 2/

1. #Qanon told us of "April Showers", and the intel he's dropped so far has been absolutely massive, and continuing now. One anon notes latest #Q is keeping everyone on their toes with many "breadcrumbs" to be "baked". So, here goes.
2. #QAnon reminds us that @POTUS & JFK Jr were close friends. JFK Jr considered seeking seat of retiring Sen. Moynihan in 2000 but was killed in a plane crash (attributed to "an inexperienced pilot"). HRC won the seat in 2000 instead. Q says this was The "Start".
3. "Baking" #QAnon's drop on #JFK Jr further, one source notes that "from the day he saluted his father’s casket til the evening his plane went down John-John had a mission… to expose who orchestrated the “dastardly act” upon his father. #Q
2. Three years later in 1984, David #Bogatin bought an apartment in #TrumpTower on Fifth Avenue, paying $6 million to buy five luxury condos. #Trump personally attended the closing, along with #Bogatin.
3. @realDonaldTrump Before the full #TRUTH can be disclosed, we must round up, arrest, and try for #Treason and other relevant crimes those involved with the #Cabal. I'm unclear on sequence here due to need to manage the public (civil unrest will be pushed by #Cabal).
