    Honorability would lie in his intentions when taking his own life, so we'll never know unless there is a somewhat hastily written last minute note.
    I don't know that honor or heroism would qualify in this instance, that would be an objective and personal judgment.

    In a local high school where a former schoolmate of mine is principal, there was an apparent suicide by gunshot in the boy's restroom. A note found in the student's locker revealed he'd planned to kill some of his classmates, as many as he could, and did not plan on living long after it. Though no one might really know, it was the belief of the investigators that the student accidentally shot himself while prepping his weapon for the massacre. Perhaps that story taints my outlook on this one. It happened only a couple of years ago.

    I believe in democracy, civil liberties, and the rule of law. That makes me a liberal, and I’m proud of it. - Paul Krugman
