Thank you for gathering for your loved ones and to walk through the night and to remember them. I always loved the idea behind the walk, that you would walk through the night for your loved one. Although everyone is gathered for the walk for very personal reasons and most have experienced devastating losses, as well as personal struggles with depression. Let there be a little light within you as you walk on Saturday, that your personal connection to suicide will never fade. I am not walking this year, but have in the past and there will be moments of sorrow and stories and moments of silence. I encourage you to just be in each moment with your loved ones.
My life has personally been touched by suicide- having lost friends and family members to suicide. Perhaps you have received this link from Susan, thank you for being there together and for raising your share for the American Foundation for Suicide of Prevention. Here is a song, “The Extra Mile,” I wrote with my friend Amy in mind and also the AFSP charity. I also included 2 other songs “Superhero Female” and “Don’t Take This Personal,” that will uplift your spirits. Feel free to use the download link on the right to add these songs to your catalogue and feel free to share them. Best of luck on the walk and may the spirits fly to be by your side.
