8.9.11

World Suicide Prevention Day

It's not until Saturday, but I sent in my annual letter to the editor early and it's in today's paper. I wasn't sure they'd print it. I had written a rather angry and fierce letter earlier this year and it was not printed. But here it is:

And, no, I won't be reading the comments. I just don't have a thick enough skin.

The two comments so far are very positive. The WashPost had the same death notice (written and paid for by family -- obituaries are written and paid for by the newspaper) a week long and I googled and it was a 20-year-old young man who committed suicide. I found that out on the Facebook Died by Suicide: Memorials. There were way too many names there.
