Two Tales of Suicide

One that followed through:
Today, is the tenth anniversary of the night you took your own life. Mom still hates you for the way you treated her as a wife. Kyler still hates you for how you treated him as a son. I hate you because I still love you, Daddy.
One that had a change of heart:
Today, on my 85th birthday, and for the 65th time, I read the suicide note I wrote when I was 20-years-old. I never followed through with it, thankfully. I read the note every year on April 20th - the day I wrote the letter - to remind myself of everything I would have missed.
Makes you think, doesn't it?
