This Saturday, This Week, This Month
From the Moms Demand Action FC group:
Personal testimony from Anne:
My only personal experiences with suicide were associated with my brother Danny’s murder in 1986. James, the mentally unstable brother-in-law who shot him, took his own life a few days later. In the following years, Danny’s severely injured wife and his oldest son attempted suicide. James’ mother and sister both took their own lives. Perhaps this was an extraordinary situation, but it emphasized for me that suicide is not an end to tragedy; rather it almost always creates more tragedy. Even for someone who has committed a crime, it takes away the opportunity for redemption.
