Finding Hope

As I mentioned in earlier post, our family participated in a suicide awareness walk, to honor those who have lost loved ones and to support those who are struggling.
We had a large group of family join together to celebrate the life of our son, and also express hope to others who are struggling as well.
All too often, people feel I needed shame and the burden of the stigma associated with suicide and mental illness is something that as a society and as a world we need to work past in order to have compassion for others. If you are struggling personally, or have someone else in your life who is experiencing suicidal thoughts, I encourage you to seek out help and resources that might be available, hopefully, in your area.
That said, if you’d like to contact me directly and share your own story, I’m happy to listen.
You can find out more information on our son at this website:

  1. It is a good thing to see, it made my day better! Unfortunately there are people that have this kind of thought and it is not a joke like some people say. When I see a person that is feeling depressed I like to invite him/her to do something different that can make the person happier than he/she is at this bad moment!
