Today is Suicide Awareness Day. It is estimated that 10 people every day are taken from us too soon by the agonizing weight of their mental health. 86% of maternal related suicides are preventable.
In honor of those we lost and continue to fight for, I encourage everyone to light a candle between the hours of 6pm-9pm to hold a moment of silence in their memory.
“I urge those that are beside themselves with hopelessness, or aching so badly inside they feel like they are without purpose: speak out, and loudly. The worst of your very HUMAN flaws hold redemption. You are cherished, your presence is wanted, and most importantly, you are not alone.”
