Suicide Awareness

‘I sobbed, ‘What have we done?’ We unpacked the U-Haul, no friends in our new town.’: Daughter chases dreams with help from father’s last words before suicide

“I was leaving everything behind for a childhood fantasy, a job in a K-12 campus I’d never even seen, and a house I’d only looked at online. I cried on the road, wondering if I was making the biggest mistake of my life. Then I heard my dad’s voice echo in my mind from those 31 years ago: ‘You can be anything you want, anywhere in the world.’ And then I lost him. To suicide.”
