Thunder Bay’s Out of the Darkness Walk went very well again this year. I made contacts with new people and came back energized and anxious to start a Youth Suicide Prevention Task Force for our community. basically, just getting all of the agencies together to talk about what resources we have and how everyone can work together. Survivors will be an important part of the process as will be the young people!
Red Lake’s walk also went good. I think we had about 15 people. My friend, Jodi, shared her story of losing her brother. My son, Andy, cooked the hot dogs. I was intrigued to notice that everyone who was at this walk were not at last year’s. It seems that every year different people attend. Hmmm, maybe that tells us that people need to come once and that is all that they need in their healing journey.
