730 days was about my friends son who took his life 2 years ago. He was 21 from a good family full of love and God and all things good and right. His depression got the better of him. The last I saw him was 3 months before – my family and his family were camping – I watched him sit in the rain with a book a umbrella – looking so sad, and I walked passed himthat day more than once – he looked like he needed some space. I will never forget that day– the look of loss on his face, the look of pain. At the time I had no idea what he was fighting, I hadn’t travelled down that road at that time. I figured he is 21 and a man he didn’t need his Mother’s friend needling into his business. I know that one moment if I had stopped might not have made a difference- but it does make you wonder. Today he is in God’s hands, and my family help his family try to heal. Jesus said when the people murdering him were nailing the nails into his hands, He prayed “Lord forgive them for they do not know what they are doing” I think that prayer was also said for this boy/man. He was a man with an education, great job, and a life time of future and hope in front of him but he was a boy who suffered from depression was embarrassed and didn’t know how to handle it and in the end followed the dark voices to the grave. Jesus conquored the grave. It is another reason I started this blog, to share the pain the defeats, victories and all the ups and downs that come with this illness. Thank you for reading.
till next time……………….
