The Death of Robert Enke
Robert Enke was Germany’s leading goal-keeper.
But he committed suicide by throwing himself under a train yesterday.
Last night, a program by Rosa Monckton was shown on BBC1. It was all about the pressures of caring for disabled children. It was heartrending and my late wife and I count ourselves lucky, that we didn’t suffer more than the odd teenage problems with ours.
Robert and his wife, had a child with a severe heart problem, who died in 2006.
My wife was a family barrister and she had seen many times how such a set of circumstances could destroy a family. She felt that very few ever survived intact.
Even one as successful and financially secure as Robert Enke.
My thoughts go out to his family and friends.
