Man Hanged Himself Over Guilt

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/man-hanged-himself-over-guilt-5773705

This link leads to a News Article about a man who hanged himself because he “could not live with his guilt”. This man’s daughter was being attacked by burglars and he didn’t do anything about it. This man thought it was his entire fault, he thought he couldn’t help. Due to this he feared what would come, in the case the “long-term effects”, in order to not experience further guilt he hung himself. This relates to my chosen theme of Guilt/Regret because you can clearly see this man was guilty of his actions, he also regrets that he couldn’t do anything to help his daughter. This article plays perfectly with this theme. This relates to Lady Macbeth because she felt guilty, extremely guilty after awhile. She regrets telling her husband, Macbeth, to kill the king, she was greedy and she wanted to be Queen. She feels guilty for her actions, at one point the guilt is just too much for her to handle and due to this she killed herself, just like this man did.
