There was once a time that you could not use the word “cancer”, in fear of getting the dreadful disease, now we use it to sell toilet paper. We were once afraid to talk to our children about sex in fear that there would be pregnant teenagers everywhere. We thought that by talking to our kids about drugs would turn them into pot heads. We learned to make pacts with our teenagers to call us, no questions asked, when they were drinking and needed a ride home.
So, now its time, time to talk about suicide…with your kids, your friends and co-workers. Because not talking about it isn’t working.
