'Another young life taken from families again over the weekend. My heart goes out to the families. I know how it feels as a mother losing a son.
It makes one so angry to see nothing is done in our communities with the service providers who daily go about doing their work in the communities. Funding is given to service providers to help communities have better improvements such as health, youth programs, family programs, mother and babies programs, just to name a few. But where is the support for families for young victims of suicides and ongoing educational programs to help stop suicide happening and to help families see the first signs of suicide?
There is no help whatsoever in our communities. Although there are countrymen who have been helping in their communities, we don't have the facilities to work and for communities to feel comfortable when getting together. Besides that, programs must be culturally based for our people to truly understand what suicide is and how it can be stopped.
I am going to see what our women can do to help other women fight these suicides. All women feel the pains of children and loved ones losing their lives. For those of us who have lost our loved ones through suicide, it is a repeat of the loss of our children.
Brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, aunties, uncles have same feelings of pain and suffering. We must stand in unity and help each other as our foremothers and forefathers did for the wellbeing of our people and especially our future who are our children.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!
May God bless and bring comfort and peace to the families of this beautiful young man! PLEASE DO NOT PRESS LIKE OR COMMENT OF YOUR SADNESS UNLESS YOU WISH TO SUPPORT US IN ORGANISING A SUICIDE MEETING FOR OUR PEOPLE OF THE KATHERINE REGION.
We need support from all people from all backgrounds. Listen to your hearts! Many Blessings!'
