A walk for a purpose ...

... on Sunday, Oct. 3, 2004, at Valley Forge Park, Valley Forge, PA, my husband, my daughter, her husband and I took part in a very important event - "This fall, over two dozen “Out of the Darkness” community walks will take place across the country. By walking in AFSP’s “Out of the Darkness” community walks, you will be joining forces with thousands of people nationwide to raise money to fund AFSP’s vital programs to prevent suicide and save lives, support survivors of suicide loss, and increase national awareness about depression and suicide."

We walked in memory of my son, Tony, who was lost to mental illness 7 years ago. We walked to validate his courage in facing his demons for so long, to honor his spirit and to keep his memory alive.
