    Under their circumstances, and this is what they wanted and had support of their families, I think it was the right thing for them to do. Bless them and their family.

    I think it's beautiful. And who the hell are you to tell them that they had no right to CHOOSE to end their own lives, just because YOUR beliefs tell you that it is a wrong thing to do.

    Seems like a ridiculous conclusion to jump to because your going blind. What were they suffering from?

    These two adult brothers were born deaf, and had communicated with each other through sign language. When they found out they were also going blind, they knew they could no longer communicate with each other at all. No sound, no sight. They were suffering from mental anguish.

    I think it's sad that they didn't consider alternatives. I've actually met two people who were blind AND deaf who could communicate just fine-- they held the hands of ASL interpreters. Not a lot of people know about this possibility, I think it's sad that they just gave up
