This story caught me by surprise this morning. Actually just yesterday a report was released here in the USA indicating the cause of death by suicide has risen to record levels. This came after the surprise demise of famous Handbag fashion icon Kate Spade who committed suicide earlier this week.
I have been a keen follower of Anthony Bourdain thanks to my wife who loves watching cooking shows and for sure, Bourdain is in her favorite list. Waking up to the news that Bourdain is dead at the age of 61 was definitely a huge shock to me! "How", I uttered to myself.
The award-winning Chef and TV host was in France to film an episode of the CNN series he hosted 'Parts Unknown'. He was found unresponsive in a hotel room in France. He died by suicide, CNN said. How sad! I was inspired by his story, how he made the ultimate sacrifice to quit working as a top Chef to pursue his dream. 'Parts Unknown' is his legacy among many other projects he has launched. Rest with the angels Bourdain, waow!!!!
