Deep roots ….

1962694_10152803088039813_4379809292140938275_nThere are far too many families living this nightmare, with none of us ever imagining that we would always be left missing our children. Even harder on their angel-versary dates. Future birthday, school events, graduations, weddings, will all be missed. It would be great to be able to offer reassurances that in time, it all gets better but its so hard to predict what the future holds. All that can be said is to STAY STRONG and know that far to many are all suffering losses. Support and caring is important and it is hoped that by sharing tragic stories, it will convince others to reach out and get help. Awareness is what will help make the changes needed to improve our mental health systems and encourage and empower others to be kinder to each other and end all abuse and bullying. It is hoped that more people and the governments will read the messages and warnings and make the necessary changes to improve the mental health care systems.  As well, there needs to be more encouragement to empower everyone to be kinder and more respectful towards each other.  This in turn, will help to reduce and hopefully erase all abuse and bullying.

    Agree with you, Merle48, that kindness and respect have become boring concepts. We need to make bullying and heartlessness “uncool”. Continue with your efforts, Carol!

    Yes Carol, kinder and more respectful to each other. That is a difficult, unattractive, and boring concept for some. But remember that they must always ‘live’ with themselves which can be punishment enough. Her memorial stone was removed, but that’s the point. A material item as this can be replaced, but the real memorial to her lives in yours and other’s hearts–and that cannot be taken away. Hope this helps a little.
