A ride for life
September 30, 2018
Today my husband and I are celebrating our 34th anniversary. No matter how hard some years were, we had love and fed each other hope. He is the reason I have done this work for the last 36 years. I have seen the darkness but have also seen what brighter days bring.
Yesterday I went out to East Orlando Harley Davidson for Ride to Fight Suicide
All of our lives have been changed in someway by the lose of hope, but none of us are ready to give up this fight for life.
While our lives may be different, the purpose of our lives has become one of restoring hope.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.Suicide is a painful thing for the families left behind. They never find the answers they are looking for. It is always with them, when the person they loved gave up on themselves. Beyond that, they gave up on the people who loved them as well.
The never ending questions of "why didn't they come to me" or "talk to me" or "let me know how much they were hurting" or "why didn't they trust me to listen to them?"
I know those feelings all too well, because it happened in my family. My husband's nephew was also a Vietnam veteran and he committed suicide 18 years ago. I have all those questions still in my head that will never be answered.
