Saoirse Kennedy Hill reportedly stayed up to watch her last sunrise before taking her own life through an apparent overdose.
It was just like any other sunrise, but to Saoirse Kennedy Hill, it was probably the most memorable sunrise she ever saw; it was her last view of the morning sun. The 22-year-old was about to venture off on a new journey as a senior at Boston College until she decided she couldn’t take it.
The Wednesday before her demise, Hill had dinner with her grandmother Ethel Kennedy then bonded over the last round of Democratic presidential debates. The night was young for Hill, and so after the debate, she went to a local resto-bar to karaoke.
THE LAST SUNRISE
After her return to the Kennedy compound at Hyannis Port in the early morning, the 22-year-old stayed up to take a dip in the Atlantic Ocean and watch the light touch the sea – her last sunrise.
By 6:30 a.m., Hill was back in bed and not to be disturbed after her long night out. Hours later, they went to check on her, but it was too late; Hill was dead.
Authorities came and brought the girl to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead with an apparent overdose, yet nothing has been confirmed.
He “encouraged everyone to read” the written work as it is a reality that many among us “suffer alone and feel isolated.”
A CASE OF MENTAL HEALTH
Hill suffered from depression for years, which manifested in the literature work she wrote, opening up about her inner demons. In 2016, she wrote an article for her school paper at Deerfield Academy.
“My depression took root in the beginning of my middle school years and will be with me for the rest of my life,” she wrote. “Although I was mostly a happy child, I suffered bouts of deep sadness that felt like a heavy boulder on my chest.”
Hill’s uncle and former U.S. representative, Patrick J. Kennedy, shared and spoke of Hill’s essays about her mental health on Twitter. He “encouraged everyone to read” the written word as it is a reality that many among us “suffer alone and feel isolated.”
Many took to social media their kind words and paid tribute to the late Kennedy, including Maria Shriver, a relative of Hill who considered her a cousin. The journalist shared kind words and reminded her fans and followers of hof “fragile” life is.
“Love your children, hold them tight. Love your family, hold them close. Love your friends, keep them near. Be gentle with others, as so many are fragile and struggling,” she wrote.
