Default "Darkness into Light" walk to support those affected by suicide

I would like to tell everyone about the annual "Darkness into Light" walks that take place around the world next Saturday. This growing movement to support those affected by suicide began in Ireland in 2009.

Basically, people gather before dawn with candles and lights, and walk together as the daylight comes getting brighter and brighter. It is very healing and to have a group of people together brings solidarity and comfort.

Google for more info as I can't post a link here.

There does not seem to be any organised event in USA yet... and I know that many people on this forum are in USA. Some of you may wish to do it privately or with friends.

My prisoner penpal took his own life. I am doing it for him.

To anyone interested you can find the link HERE.

I've lost more than one family member to suicide (long time ago now) and if they had this walk in my country I would do it... I might just do my own special walk on Sunday as it also is a Mother's Day here and one of the persons I lost to suicide was my mom.

Thanks for sharing this!
