I’ve been reading Travis Connick’s blog and he has written an excellent post on suicide. It’s really first class.
I remember the moment exactly; it was a peaceful Saturday morning. My wife, Trea walked into our bathroom and said, “The paramedics called and they need you.” A young man who I knew ended his life, and his young girlfriend was in the room, witnessed it, and wouldn’t speak to anyone but me. The girlfriend kept telling the paramedics, “I just want to talk to Travis, please get Travis.”
