Candles Lit For World Suicide Prevention Day

My candles in memory of my son Zach and all those who have
died by suicide.

The response I saw on Facebook today for World Suicide Prevention Day was amazing!
The love people shared with me and others was beautiful.

It proved to me that we are caring and loving people.
We are not stereotypes of "bad families" with "bad kids" who choose suicide.

We are loving people who want the best for others.
We want YOU to reach out for help if you need it.
We want YOU to speak up for someone you know struggling with suicidal thoughts.

The pain we survivors, the families and friends left behind is nearly unbearable,
yet we survive and speak up and speak out for suicide prevention.

We share our stories, our photos and yes, our pain in hopes to educate others
on the importance of preventing suicides.

Please, if you are considering suicide, reach out for help.

The National Lifeline is: 1-800-273-TALK (8255)
