Reddit co-founder Aaron Swartz died today by his own hand.
At 26 years of age, the fear of pending incarceration caused him to take his own life.
It's a sad day for his supporters, friends and family.
For all those who appreciate Reddit, Aaron's life has been meaningful.
For all those who value life, his death is tragic.
Hopelessness can attack any of us at one time or another.
Nothing is worth ending your own life, though.
Because life never ends.
It just goes into eternity.
Aaron knows this now.
