XY (a well-known artist) tried to take her life, the news said bluntly.
As she herself informed on twitter (…), she first tried to take her life on
Thursday and then again on Sunday.
End of story.
The news was published in a widely distributed (I should rather say given away) morning
tabloid for commuters.
I imagine the morning crowd reading this short piece of news among those of rising petrol prices, January sales,
the car ads, not even noticing properly who the news is about.
Here it is, someone´s life´s tragedy reduced to four lines and published in the “fait divers” section.
Doesn´t she really deserve a little more respect?
