At this 8:00 evening hour on World Suicide Prevention Day, I light this candle for my little brother, Kevin.
“There isn’t enough darkness in all the world to snuff out the light of one little candle.” -Robert Alden.
You are missed, and God knows you are loved.
Thank you to everyone who stopped a moment to read my blog, or to “Like” a suicide prevention page on Facebook, or hashtag #NSPW on Twitter. Thank you to those of you who went a step further and commented or shared your story with me. Thank you finally, to those of you who to yet one more step out of your comfort zone and saved a life in your way. Thanks to each and every one of you, this week we made a difference in someone’s life. Someone knows that they are not alone in this struggle.
Moving on to next week and beyond I will be back to posting the funny and the mundane in this space, but I hope that this feeling of community lingers much longer.
