It’s been pretty difficult to blog lately – mostly because of what I have been writing about on my other blog. I have been exchanging emails with Kevin Dwyer’s sister about her two younger brothers who took their own lives when they were just kids. I have decided to form a team to walk in the upcoming “Out of the Darkness” walk next June – I will be doing it in their honor, and to raise awareness about this cause. It is a 20 mile walk that starts at dusk and ends at dawn. It will be challenging but very meaningful. Right now I am recruiting folks to join me on my team.
After hearing from her, I cannot stop thinking about her family. She too was very young (older than her two brothers) and she was the one who came home and found Kevin. She told me that somehow you learn how to cope and life goes on. She is now married and has children of her own. I salute her strength, and her ability to find the light at the end of her tunnel.
