World Suicide Prevention Day

World Suicide Prevention Day is observed on September 10 each year to promote worldwide action to prevent suicides. Various events and activities are held during this occasion to raise awareness that suicide is a major preventable cause of premature death.
At 8 PM it is suggested that supporters of this amazing cause (whether it be a survivor of suicide loss, a lived experience, a personal struggle, a connection through someone else, etc.) light a candle and place it in your window for those who have gone and for those who are still here.
Dad, I miss you every single day and thank God for the time we had with you even though it was cut much too short.  You are so loved and so missed.

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”
Brené Brown
