A killer fork in the road: The pursuit of happiness hits a dead end with a double suicide

A Brooklyn couple who hosted a radio show called The Pursuit of Happiness apparently thought that happiness was best pursued in the afterlife, where there are angels instead of Kardashians.

Lynne Rosen and John Littig, a psychotherapist and motivational speaker respectively who did a self-help radio show, were found dead on a couch in the living room of their apartment.

Evidently they were simply aching for eternity after committing suicide together by putting plastic bags over their heads and inhaling helium.

So much for self help.

    As you know, Zeke, it is my strong contention that only by believing the gospel of Jesus Christ is the soul’s longing for contentment satisfied.

    Or, as St. Augustine put it, “Thou hast made us for thyself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it finds its rest in thee.”

    I was not even a little bit shocked to find out that these poor folks reached a point of despair by trying to get it another way. Sure, people can find contentment and satisfaction in life through other means temporarily, but I am talking about something that endures.
