Saturday is International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day.
I think you all have probably heard that I started this blog after the suicide of a dear life-long friend of mine Dina. So this day is my day, but its also the day of so many of my friends and our high school community, who have also been living with her loss. Her parents, her brother, her son.
She’s not the first loved one I’ve lost to suicide. Years ago, a family member I didn’t even know. The relative of a childhood boyfriend. The attempt by a college friend while we were in school. A friend from college Matt.
Tomorrow I’ll be sharing a post here written by a fellow “survivor”. Please come back and share your love with her too.
If you are struggling, please reach out.
