What do you say when you don’t know what to say?
Thursday evening, I received an email from a dear friend of mine. She was letting me know that her beautiful, bright 24 year old daughter had committed suicide in early July. I was stunned and extremely sad at the same time. You want to say something to take away the pain they are feeling, but there are no words. All I could say was that I would keep her and all of her family in my prayers, praying for peace and clarity. And that I was sending light and love to them.
There are no words in these situations. Just be there.
