Only self help is through Allah. No meds just u and him. Well it worked for me atleast and its way better than taking ur own life. Just saying why not try… too many people are depressed bcus they need to live up to some man made illusion of what they think life is about. May she rest in peace and memories of her be a blessing and many.
So putting a gun to someone's head is only ok when the government does it? Mama Judd was a republican, they all have mental health issues. Oh damn! Ashley is demonstrating such grace and dignity in confronting this most personal tragedy. So did my father. She killed herself Guns dont kill people ,people who pull the trigger does
So sad...condolences to the whole Family. Absolutely tragic. Absolutely preventable. Absolutely understandable, as someone who also battles depression.
Judd Apatow Reveals Idea For ’Superbad 2’ That Never HappenedJudd Apatow reveals the idea for a ‘Superbad’ sequel he always wanted to make:
why? So sad. 💔 ur WAY more likely to off urself with a gun that successfully defend a home invasion (and it's worse for women because of DV and partner homicide) So sad. Mental health needs to be taken seriously every time! When I was 23 a friend of mine killed herself with a handgun. It had a dramatic effect on my life. I wrote this song about it/for her. Might help.
I am so sad for their loss This may be how she chose. The conversation about mental and behavorial health needs to be loud and constant. Every day ppl take their life, no blame or shame need be cast. The torment they with is real. Compassion is needed. Why did she have easy access to a gun? Praying for the Judd family.
Naomi Judd’s public memorial service will air live Sunday on CMT“Naomi Judd: A River Of Time Celebration” will be held commercial-free at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
Translation from the Wokesterism: she shot herself. May she be at peace now. 😔 lookner Thatl do it. I am so so sorry for the Judd family. Mental health, today is still not understood, or acknowledged. It may never be totally acknowledged in my lifetime. And for that I'm woefully sorry. I knew it was suicide but I didn't know it was a gun.
Sad ending to a beautiful woman. So sad💔 This is so sad! I remember watching her perform as a little girl. I always thought her and Wynona were Everything! Sorry to hear this.. Wow What it comes down to,Your inner self and the determination of spirit the willingness to love and live life keeps you going....Must be strong whether you have one million dollars or one dollar to your name,the strong back bone you have you can deal with up and downs of life.

TV two-part season one finale of Naomi, ep. 12 “Ready or Not” and ep. 13 “Who Am I?” Imagine finding out tha… Superman never struggled with how bad this was.
Go deeper. I bet that you will found that a Russian has to be the responsible for this. And the victim is related to Ukraine. Damn, I hate shit journalism. Meaning she shot herself lol “firearm wound”? Her pain has ended.. but her daughters have to deal with this for the rest of their lives. I hate this for them.
Prayers for whole Judd family and I think Ashley is fiercely brave for doing interview all alone and telling the truth of how her mom passed . Prayers for comfort .🙏🙏🙏❤️❤️❤️ Really sad.. There are about 25,000 homicides every year in the US but about 42,000 suicides each year. Mental health is a problem that needs to be addressed
How very sad that is.... Some of your people really don’t understand mental illness

May his soul rest in peace. Ashleyjudd Sending you & your sister many many prayers. You are very brave to discuss how your mother passed; regardless she is at peace now & your family is well respected & loved. 🙏💔😢 I am so sorry to hear of Ms. Judd’s untimely passing at her own hand. This brings to mind the uncomfortable plight of the mentally unstable in their own minds. Nothing feels good enough for any. G-d bless her and her family during this most difficult time. G-d bless.
DEAR GOD WRAP YOUR ANGEL'S AROUND THIS FAMILY YOUR SON JESUS NAME AMEN🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿 OMG Fame, wealth, talent, beauty - none of this can save someone’s soul when they want to give up on this difficult world. I can only imagine how much she must have suffered behind that brave, lovely face through the years❤️
Oh this is horribly sad. If there is anything I can say it’s, we were not in her shoes. Did not live her life. Did not experience her stress, depression and pressures of daily existence. We all deal with our own issues and choose to handle them as we see fit. Who are we to judge her or the family?
Watch: Cops Yank Vicky White From Flipped CadillacAuthorities said that Casey White had wanted to end his time on the lam with a police shootout, but a U.S. Marshal ramming the couple’s car during the chase swiftly put an end to that plan. These were both whites. You can’t trust the whites!
Who? Likely because of people at at CNN spreading lies. Naomi Judd Mentall anxiety depression is real .. Breaks my heart. The family said they did not want to reveal details and today Ashley says she felt uncomfortable but forced to. RIP Another coward taking the easy way out...let's get back to newsworthy stuff
Everyone is so focused on these gun rights instead of actually being more sensitive about the fact that someone just died today. My condolences to her family and I am just so in shock of how society has become so sensitive about rights versus an awful death of a human being So sad to hear..Mental illness is so real..Don't ignore the signs. 🥲🥲
Vicky White autopsy result confirms suicide by gunshotThe jail official's cause of death has officially been ruled a suicide after an autopsy found she died from a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Funny how no one shot or killed them while they were fleeing police.
Probably the guns fault.🙄 Plastic everywhere..scene probably looked like crushed Legos 🤣🤣 The best doctors in the world she can have. Are they really trying to tell us there is no hope? She had the best life. Isn't that the dream? She had the dream and this is how it ends? Like Robin Williams? If you or someone you love is hurting: 800273TALK 24/7/365 Chat available.

God Bless your entire Family. So sad. 🙏🏻 My grandpa is in the Gung ho image and somebody changed his facial features. Look at No Glory'gung Ho' Name is Franklin Herman Mardis and im Daniel Lee Berger. 937-977-4298-- Also someone put General Patton's Grand Daughters Michelle's number in my 859-576-3065
I've suffered depression.... Thankfully, after years of trial & error of trying different meds, with my doctor we found the right combination. But even at my lowest point, I could never immagine taking a gun to myself..... That's courage/desperation. How tragic. 😥 aka suicide :( Pain is over Don't use fancy words, just say she committed suicide
Self-inflicted firearm wound - Is that a nice way to say “gun suicide”?
My condolences to Ashley Judd and the family. 😢 😢 😢😢😢💔. 😳🥺 This is an example why not everyone needs a firearm in their home. Now maybe she would have gotten past the moment if the firearm was not present. Maybe not. The Second, amendment right to own guns is not the same as saying everyone should own guns. This is a tragedy for all.
It's very sad and someone with a history of mental health issues shouldn't have access to a gun. So terribly sad 💔😥
