While I completely understand that many people are mourning the passing of somebody that was influential on their lives, I personally urge everyone that might read this post to think about somebody in their lives today, an ordinary person, that has influenced your life in a positive and meaningful way and let them know. Maybe what Anthony and Kate needed was somebody to call and tell them that they were loved, valuable, that they were thinking about them. Everyone knows someone that could be struggling today and sees suicide as their only way out of their pain. Who knows what life you may save with a simple phone call or a text message? I’m not saying that this is the only possible solution but I’ve found it’s always better to do something than nothing. #supportlife #bethechange
