SUICIDE and its many RIPPLES

"Place your hand over your heart, can you feel it? That is called purpose. You’re alive for a reason so don’t ever give up." Author Unknown  

Suicide is all around us. Most likely you, and those you love have been tragically affected by a suicide of someone close. It's real and it's serious.

My family is one of those. We lost a vibrant, fun, humorous, athletic, and kind son and brother at a very young age. It left a mark of darkness on families, friends, schools, church, community, and generations. It also left a desire for more compassion, more empathy, more openness, and more hope. A reminder to savor the moment, let go of resentments, and live completely.

The ripples of suicide are many.

Many people affected.

Many dark days.

Many questions.

Many emotions. Many regrets.

Many memories.

Please help yourself and others stay safe from suicide. There are answers, solutions, and help.
