Giving Back: Suicide Prevention

Writing this is not easy for me, even years later. In 2016, our family was forever changed by the loss of my little sister to suicide. She was only 21, and her departure left an indelible mark on our hearts.

The aftermath of that day was devastating; her loss rippled through every part of our lives, turning everything upside down. The confusion. The sadness. The guilt. Could I have done something different to change this outcome? It was the deepest sadness I have ever known.

I won't recount those dark times, but I can say this: it's a pain I wouldn't wish on anyone. While time has softened the edges of the grief, as I write this with tears streaming down my face, it's clear that the sorrow never truly fades. It lingers in the quiet moments of our busy lives, always present.

I will miss her every day until my time here is done.

I am certain the wound will never completely heal from this loss, but it brings me some comfort to work towards preventing such tragedies for others. That's why I've chosen to support the Crisis Text Line, an incredible organization dedicated to combating suicide. They provide immediate, text-based help to those in crisis, and their work has undoubtedly saved countless lives. They successfully de-escalate someone at imminent risk for suicide or self-harm every 30 minutes.

These yearly contributions are more than donations; they are a stand against the "silent epidemic" of suicide.
