Thank you for guiding my eyes to your words.
I remember reading Joe's piece and also Rasheed's. I had thought at the time, I didn't need to make any calls...I have imaginary re-do conversations or just a chat with people that impacted my life but are no longer of the physical realm.
But after reading your words here...I could say ditto. Ditto to making a similar call to a guy in highschool that committed suicide.
We weren't close, but as we passed each other we would still share a nod of the head. We shared form together so saw each other every day.. Until we didn't.
Until he didn't come to school one day and we found out why.
I haven't thought of him in years, until I read your words.
So yep, that is who I would ring too. Check in before he decided his best option was to check out.
Thank you for writing.
Thank you for being you.
