No winners

I heard today some tragic news about a young man who used to live at the YMCA who took his own life.  I didn’t know him very well, had had a few good conversations with him back when he lived with us but that’s going back a couple of years.  Whenever you saw him he was always very welcoming and friendly, a nice guy who put you at ease.

It is very sad that he is gone.  There are no winners with suicide.  The one who is gone will never be back and the wounds are deep for those that are left.

I pray that the scars that remain will enable those who are hurting to eventually become stronger through the pain they experience now.
