A suicide to remember me by.

Currently in the news is the crash of Germanwings flight 4u9525 has again rocketed the aviation community and the mental stability of those entrusted with the caring and safety of others to the fore front of public awareness
What answers will ever be enough for the family members of those who perished in the crash? What causes someone with these responsibilities to decide that their own death will not satisfy their personal anguish? Is it the knowledge that history will remember them that fuels their public announcement of suicide? Maybe it is simply, using this large aircraft filled with highly explosive jet fuel, flown into a mountain at speeds approaching 600 miles an hour will be quick and painless.  Since there isn't any other way to get this method of suicide without other people on board, then,  because others are with him, are they just unlucky? Did he even consider others? Certainly he was aware that others would try to stop him, this is why he locked the door.
Did the company know about his problems?Did they ignore him? How about you and me; doesthis give us ideas on our own problems? Do we know someone who answers to this description? if so, what are we going to do about it?
