Yesterday was the sixth annual Halifax Walk for World Suicide Prevention Day. In Halifax about 100 people walked from Victoria Park to City Hall. It was our first, the sixth for others. We meet other survivors and shared our grief. One man I talked to lost his son to suicide 20 years ago. He said the pain never goes away, you just learn to live with it.

Tomorrow, September 10, marks World Suicide Prevention Day.
