This post originally ran last year on the anniversary of my brother's suicide. I have revised it only by taking my initial lead in out and changing it for this month's Mental Health March.
Her words continue to be her words.
I absolutely, positively LOVE my Cassi girl over at Fire and Rabbits. I joke and say that I act like her internet momma, but I'm too young to be her momma so I'll settle for being her really cool internet auntie.
Cassi is another that I've latched onto for dear life. I love her, truly will be here for her any time she needs to reach out.
This post brings me to tears each time I read it.
It's a perfect example of WHY I chose to do Mental Health March, in honor of my dad. To help even ONE person with simple words.
Please go visit my lovely Cassi's blog at: Fire and Rabbits
