Today is World Suicide Prevention Day

As I’m sure many of you are aware, today is World Suicide Prevention Day. Like all too many, I have both lost someone to suicide and nearly been it’s victim myself. If not for the intervention of a good friend who made sure that I got the help that I needed so that I didn’t die that night.

I won’t take a lot of time to belabour the point, however I want to say that suicide happens not because people wish to runaway from their lives or because they’re cowards, but rather it happens when the pain becomes completely and totally unbearable. It is the most horrific experience that anyone can have to feel that utterly lost and hopeless.
