KATE SPADE SUCCUMBS TO HER DEMONS: HANGS HERSELF.
ICHEOKU says don't we all have our demons, hounding us and nibbling our heels, every step of the way and whispering crazy nonsensical into our ears all the time; trying to urge us to do stuff, from the unthinkable, to the mundane. So what eventually tripped her and forced her hand. Only the special grace of God helps us through and gives us the strength to carry on and to avoid acceding to the promptings and instigations of these demons. But with Kate, it seems they finally got the upper hand and overwhelmed her spirit and will for resistance. They forced her hands to tie a noose around her neck, using her scarf and in a moment, it was over; her fights and struggles, that is. Her neck was broken by the weight of her body pulling down from a door knob where she had hung herself.
ICHEOKU says what is the value of life one might ask, faced with such inexplicable tragedy of someone who to many was really living it up, the American dream life. A multi millionaire clothing accessories designer, specializing in ladies handbags under the same trade name as her name, and who is worth in excess of $150 million, to just suddenly walk away from her life of privilege and took her own life. Taking a rapid descent from such a high sunshine life to manic depression that resulted to her taking her own life, is indeed a tragic cry for help that went unanswered. Her own scarf tied to her own bedroom door knob inside her Park Avenue apartment, with her neck inside it and bore the pain until it was over. It must be some serious issue of depression that will make somebody to endure such painful gruesome end, that probably stretched out to a few minutes. She was depressed and could not take it anymore, and having lost every desire to trudge on, jumped off the deep end.
ICHEOKU says it is yet another statement that money does not buy happiness or a good state of mind; otherwise Kate Spade made enough of it and would have still be alive today. This thing called life is indeed one crazy scary journey and only the brave ones soldier on, one foot in front of the other, one at a time; but Kate has had enough and she surrendered to her demons. May her soul now find rest. Adieu KS.
