Every September, I mean to write something for Suicide Prevention Month. Every time a celebrity suicide makes the news and the handful of times suicide has indirectly touched my life, I mean to speak out. I mean to break the silence, but it is harder than it seems like it should be. I know that silence is part of the problem, that it leaves hurting people in isolation, that its only benefit is to protect my image, and still, I hesitate. I feel ashamed.
Good Christians don’t toy with the idea of suicide.
