In March, I received a call I was never prepared to receive.
Earlier this month, I received a similar call.
Both times, my mother called to inform me that someone I knew had committed suicide.
At first, I couldn’t wrap my mind around the realities of these situations. I’ve dealt with deaths. There’s an ineffability of the aftermath of a suicide. No words can fully contain it. I am the type of person that always feels better when I DO something, which is why I am walking in the Out of Darkness Walk in Pasadena on November 4.
Please help me to vanquish the darkness of suicide by raising funds and awareness.
