Worldwide Candle Lighting

On the second Sunday in December every year, a Worldwide Candle Lighting ceremony in conjuction with “The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting”, are held.

These ceremonies are for families that have experienced the death of a child, sibling, or granchild, no matter how long ago, or at what age.

At 7pm local time, a candle is lit for every child being remembered. So as they are lit over the entire globe, the light shines for 24 hours to commemorate and honor children, siblings, and granchildren of all ages who have died from any cause and transcends all ethnic, cultural, religious, and political boundaries.

Take a look at this video…….

Whether or not there is a service in your area, please join me in lighting a candle at 7pm your local time this Sunday, December 11, 2011.

Thank you~

13th Annual International Survivors of Suicide Day

Saturday, November 19th is the 13th Annual
International Survivors of Suicide Day.

There are many conferences being held around the world at the same time, and there will be an interactive online chat available after the event.

If there is not a conference being held near you, there will be an online conference you can join as well.

Go here: http://www.afsp.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=home.viewPage&page_id=FEE7D778-CF08-CB44-DA1285B6BBCF366E to get all of the details.

I plan on attending even though I do have to work on Saturday. And if I miss any part of it, there will be a replay available.

So, lets support eachother as we grieve our loss!

God Bless You!

Substance Abuse in Youth with Bipolar Disorder

I am attending a webinar tomorrow on “Substance Abuse in Youth with Bipolar Disorder”; courtesy of http://www.thebalancedmind.org/ . This will be the first time I have attended a webinar like this, but I will let you know if I get any nuggets of information that may help us all in both “Mental Illness Awareness”, and “Suicide Prevention”.

Have a blessed day!

Survivor of Suicide Loss

I attended my very first Survivor of Suicide Loss meeting last night. My son died on May 25, 2005 over six years ago and I have never been to a meeting and never spoke with a counselor, etc.

I was so proud of many of the people there last night, because many of them had lost a loved one within the past couple of months, or less than a year ago.

I shed tears last night, and we all shared our feelings, and honestly I thought I wasn’t going to speak at all last night. I really don’t like it when I am feeling weak. But I soon felt comfortable to speak up and it felt good.

My message to you today is this…..reach out for help if you need it. Don’t be like me and suffer alone….go be with others who are going through the same feelings as you. It really will help!

If you are interested in how you might find a meeting near you, go to American Foundation for Suicide Prevention

It may be hard at first, but you will begin to feel comfortable as everyone starts to share. Really not sure why this helps so much, but I assure you it will! Oh, and if you don’t want to talk, you don’t have to. It may take you going a few times before you feel like sharing. Thats okay! It will still help you to be there.

Have a blessed day, and please share this information with everyone you know!

We never know who may be suffering silently!

Also, I am doing a Blog Talk Radio Show on Thanksgiving morning so we can all get together and remember our loved ones. The holidays are very tough! 😉
