In The Darkest Moments

This month (September) is Suicide Awareness Month, this past Tuesday was World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10).  Suicide is not something I talk about a lot.

But I believe this issue is too important to not discuss. Too important to me and my family, cause it effects us as a family, any friendships I have, as well as our business.
