Because the effects of sin extend beyond the sinner and effect the lives of every single person around them. Hence, Bernie Madoff’s greed didn’t just ruin his life and the lives of his victims, it also has claimed the ultimate prize in the tragic suicide of his own son.
One of Bernard Madoff’s sons was found dead of an apparent suicide Saturday on the second anniversary of his father’s arrest, according to a law enforcement official. Mark Madoff, 46, was found hanged in his apartment in Manhattan’s fashionable SoHo section, according to the official. A family member notified police around 7:30 a.m. The official was not authorized to speak publicly about the case and spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity. Mark Madoff and his brother, Andrew, were under investigation but hadn’t faced any criminal charges in the massive Ponzi scheme that led to their father’s jailing.
Bernie sinned and his son’s teeth were set on edge. The next time someone utters the fool’s words ‘it’s my business what I do with my life’ call them a liar and tell them what they do effects every single person within their ‘circle of life’.
