Re: Condolences to the family of Nick Starks
I know everything is lighthearted for the most part on here but tomorrow take a minute and count your blessings. Also if you think someone might be depressed or has been acting different lately take a minute to simply say, text or tweet "Hey buddy how the heck are you doing? Talk to me." Believe me it makes a difference and costs nothing. I personally went through a very rough patch not to long ago was going to commit suicide. I had the notes, loaded weapon and a nice spot picked out to do it. What stopped me? God is my witness but my wife called and said "I was just thinking about you and wanted to see how you were doing and to just let you know that I love you. I know you're going through stuff and you'll come to me when you wanna talk about it. Until then just know I'm here and in your corner." I know some may ask how I could remember all that. Well when my cell rang I actually recorded the conversation. Not sure why I did but I sure am glad I did. In fact I have that exchange tattooed on my chest. Just a little reminder. So reach out. Both of you will be better for it!!
