We were all disheartened to hear of another suicide this morning from the 8th Street Bridges. The newspapers have reported that this was a young woman, still attending high school. My condolences to the family and friends, and to our community. We all suffer together.
I have a few writers who have written very personal experiences concerning suicide, and I have saved these blog posts for the appropriate time. I believe that time is now.
I ask for complete respect for these writers who have chosen to share their story here. I am humbled and honored by their open willingness to create a dialog, and I appreciate their candor.
May we all heal.
