I am determined to have peace in my life again.

Entry #25

I saved a life today.  Someone I've known for decades attempted suicide. There were posts on Facebook that thankfully I saw.  My attempts at contact went without response.


No choice but to call the police to respond.  Thank God they got there in time to prevent another tragic disaster.  The officer who responded phoned to let me know that the person was safe and in the ER.  I can't even put into words to express how happy I am that this person is still here with us.


I'm feeling so good that a crisis was averted and this person will be able to start getting help.  I was able to talk with family members and offer some direction and resources for going forward. I'm also feeling emotionally spent.  Suicide is so ugly and this situation brought up all the memories of that day in March.


Kiss and hug your loved ones and tell them how much they mean to you.

It will be 13 years ago on 10/4 when my boyfriend chose suicide as a way out too. Thank you for sharing! ~ peace, love & light.

My thoughts are with you. I had two nephews commit suicide. Bryant was 32 and Keith was 30. Why why why!!???

Ken's choice was not in anyway your fault. My step father of 33 years decided to hang himself at the age of 91. Heartbreaking, the grief is different- as stated
