Suicidal? Don’t be. Talk to someone. Immediately.

I have buried a child. My oldest son, on March 1st of 2010, at age 18, took his life.

Believe me when I tell you that suicide is not the solution to any problem. It’s not the best way out. It isn’t.
If you think you’re doing the world a favor, you aren’t. If you think nobody loves you or nobody cares, you’re wrong.
Despite whatever you may think, there is so much life to live and you have so much to give.

Life is beautiful. Find the beauty. And if you can’t find it, then seek out the help of a professional. Please.
