After much thought, I’ve decided to include a link to the Suicide Memorial Wall because I think it’s important for people to know, and see, the number of people who have taken their own lives. Thousands of names will be seen on this site, and Barry’s name will appear alongside the others in about a week – on Wall 6 (or so I’m told).
Until it happened to me I had no idea that so many people felt as if life isn’t worth living. No idea. Now, I want to shout to the world that some of our children are suffering and we have to be careful and watchful. Be aware of the warning signs and, maybe, you can avert the end result to something worthwhile and meaning for your child.
My heart goes out to all the survivors of the people mentioned on that website.
