Oftentimes I have heard from people surviving a death from suicide that their souls seem dead. This crushing blow has literally deadened one’s spirit. All around survivors the world goes on but for the survivor the world has come to a crashing halt. The world has stopped and unfortunately survivors cannot get off.
Our Grief and Our Children

Families are little systems that respond to change on inter-related levels. Think of suicide loss within a family as producing seismic change. While individual elements of our lives have survived the loss, such as other loved ones, home, car and job, they may no longer seem familiar.

Loss and Learning
Wednesday, July 12, 2017 by Cynthia Waderlow MSE, LCSW
After a sudden loss like suicide, families are reeling. Parents may feel like they have lost energy and find that hopeless feelings, apathy or frustration are affecting their interactions with children and teens. Children, in response, may be furtive and watchful of your tears and despair at home, while looking for normalcy in school or with friends outside the home.

The great American holiday is celebrated on the 4th of July. This is a day when we commemorate the event when our Founding Leaders fought to throw off the shackles of an oppressive regime. These people fought and many of them died in order to create a more humane environment. While our country is not perfect it certainly enables all of us to live free and have many opportunities to live out our dreams and pursue our goals. For this we give thanks that out Founding Leaders had the courage and the foresight to follow their dreams and aspirations. They created an environment and produced a road map that we follow to this day. Our country has gotten better over the centuries as our leaders have perfected and refined the original documents that gave our country its beginning. Our country has evolved since the first shots were fired and the shackles were thrown off.
