I definitely expose my emotionally naked heart here on this site since the death of my son by suicide. I’m not sure how or why I got comfortable with that but it has helped me find others who are on this journey. It’s helped me work through my pain and not feel ashamed of my hurt.
By exposing myself and putting myself out there, slowly but surely I am finding peace and purpose. Thank you Megan for sending this road-worthy #griefheart.
There is a walk for suicide awareness and prevention called “Out of the Darkness” walk. I am participating on #TeamCharlesRVA this weekend to celebrate his life and that of others we’ve lost to suicide. To acknowledge our loved ones and their struggle and bring awareness to a subject that needs more conversation.
The color white is for those of us who have lost a child by suicide and this white ribbon represents that. This will be my first Out of the Darkness walk.
From Kelly Greer about her granddaughter’s friend, Paris.
“Our granddaughter’s childhood friend took her own life this Spring (2016). She was only 14 years old. Those girls were inseparable. This is handprint art they made with a print from each of their hands. Her name was Paris. She was beautiful and we miss her.”
This is what the #griefheart project is all about. Being able to honor and share memories of those we miss who have died by suicide.
