About Me

Welcome to my web site. I hope you find something useful here and enjoy the content.

I’m Glen and I’m the father of Rehtaeh Parsons. Losing Rehtaeh to suicide changed every part of me and left me shell-shocked for years.

Today I still struggle, but it isn’t from fear or regret or any single thing that has to do with death. I want the days I have left, I want to enjoy them, and I want to be at peace when the sun goes down every night from now until my end. I love my life and I’ve healed from a mountain of shit.

I believe in being honest in my writing. When I write I use my experiences and heart. I believe this is it; one life, one chance. Live it well!

I’m married to the most amazing person I’ve ever meet, and together we love sharing our time and adventures. Please feel free to follow along or leave a comment.

Thank you for visiting and I wish you healing and peace,

Glen

Rehtaeh Parsons

I have a page set up that is dedicated to Rehtaeh’s life and her case. You can find it here. You can also find more about Rae from the Rehtaeh Parsons Society or on her Facebook page.

Rehtaeh’s story has made a lot of necessary and positive changes. Changes to the Criminal Code of Canada were important but not nearly as important as seeing many young people stand up for what is right. We have heard back from many of them and their parents. It helps a great deal to know she has made a difference in the world.

We had a lot of fun together. I miss Rehtaeh very much.
