‘Oh yeah, I saw that coming!’

Said no one. Ever.

Maybe some small percentage of people saw a suicide of a friend or family member coming. I’ve not yet met that person though. And I’ve talked to hundreds. I am sure they are out there. But they aren’t the majority.

Most of the parents and people I talk with post suicide are shocked. Bewildered and left with questions they’ll probably never get answers to.

He was such a great guy!

She was such a fantastic athlete.

Kindest person I ever knew.

Cared so much for others.

He was so talented.

She had everything going for her.…
