Listen to me…

I believe that I am one of the most fortunate people in Alabama.

I attended the ASPARC- (Alabama Suicide Prevention) conference in Homewood on Friday.

When someone says, “This is the first time I am able to share my experience. ”

You listen. You know you just heard something you will never forget.

Thank you to everyone that has the courage to share their experiences.

I hope you are received with beautiful encouragement.

Thank you everyone that shared Friday.

Your courage and survival will help those who help others.

And if someone ever shares with you, let them know how brave they are.

If someone trusts you with something that they have held inside for 10 years or more, you are trusted with unimaginable pain.

I have a few new heroes in my life now.

We all need a hero, don’t we?

I will continue to share as I process this day.

Reagen added a resource page to my blog.

Just in case you need to talk to a hero.

Many answer the phone.

Others make you an appointment.

Some just read blogs and reply with emails that keep me going.

Listen to me. All of you.

THANK YOU.

Cheryl
