“And we wept that one so lovely should have a life so brief.” William Cullen Bryant
I've been asked many times how I managed to get through lossing my only child to suicide and it's always a struggle to answer. Truth is I have no idea but there are things that helped and things that didn't. That much I can share. So this morning I wrote a page about grieving
Charlotte also created this video about victim blaming. This video trailer for my book was put together by Charlotte. She's the daughter of Susan McClelland, my co-author and dear friend. The song for the video was done by Lauren, Susan's other daughter, both very talented and inpsiring young ladies.
Time numbs the pain, but this wound will never heal. I've come to accept that truth, finally. I no longer focus on all the "lasts" we shared and instead I envolope myself in all the firsts. The first day I was a father, her first steps, first words, first day of school. The first time she ran into my arms and held me tight.
