Wow, thanks for sharing Torry. I think young people commiting suicide is becoming an ‘epidemic’. Suicide affects so so many people, and to imagine a young person taking their life to escape the feelings and experiences they’re having, which will one day change, breaks my heart. My first suicide attempt was when I was twelve, and since then I have survived multiple suicide attempts, some of which were very serious and could have taken my life. I could have never imagined at that time in my life that things would one day change for the better and that I would learn to love my life; struggles and all.
Thankfully these two parents are doing something both incredible and extraordinarily important.
