World Suicide Prevention Day

    Won't you show your support by lighting a candle near or in your window at 8:00 tonight?  For those who have felt (myself included, at times) that there were no other options, for those that just couldn't see the light at the end of the tunnel. For those who suffered in silence, not knowing how to ask us to grab their hands and pull them out of the dark hole of despair that they were stuck in.

      For the families and friends left behind with hearts shattered, struggling to understand. Why did they feel so alone... Why didn't they talk to us... Why didn't we see it... Was there something we could have done?

     For those who are feeling that way right now. As you read this. I know the tremendous pain you are feeling. But I promise you this: there IS hope. Even when you cannot see it, no matter how hard you look. It's there. You just have to reach out. Please. If you need someone to help you find that hope, call 1-800-273-8255. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by calling.

     I will be lighting a candle in my window for my dearly missed friend, Tariq, who left us entirely too soon. Who will you be lighting a candle for?
