“We do not want to comprehend that people may and do die of emotional pain, or to recognize the terror in ourselves when we cannot seem to help someone in despair -- when our words are empty.”
Jill Bialosky, History of a Suicide: My Sister's Unfinished Life

“To get through the night, I sometimes imagined the sky filled with a canopy of stars. I imagined that each star contained the soul of a girl or boy who had died too young, and the light the stars gave off was their brightness.”
Jill Bialosky, History of a Suicide: My Sister's Unfinished Life

“Suicides do not end their lives because they are weak, mentally ill, or depressed - though certainly they may be all those things. They are in blinding, all-consuming psychic pain, and perhaps on that final poisonous day they can find no reason not to.”
Jill Bialosky, History of a Suicide: My Sister's Unfinished Life
