Trigger warning!!! This is more of a serious topic that includes the loss of life and mental illness.
If you need someone to talk too, 988 is the mental health/suicide prevention hotline number. You can call or text 988 or you can livechat oneline at 988lifeline.org/chat
These are 24/7 hotlines manned by mental health professionals who are there to help.
FighterWizard is coerced by Raider to discuss the recent murder-suicide at their former campus. Raider willingly dives head first into this touchy topic… maybe that was not the best metaphor in this situation. However, Raider uses this news item to point out the rigors and pressure certain Asian students face from their family and culture, especially if they hope to get an advanced degree. Both these guys have seen it first hand and give their Western perspective of watching this dynamic play out.
Here is a news article about the tragic story: https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2022-12-14/uc-irvine-apparent-murder-suicide-two-identified
