A couple of weeks ago I wrote about my intentions to post the audio file from my brother and my interview through Story Corps. Well, my dad found a way to post it, so here it is.
As we enter into this Thanksgiving week, I find myself grateful for many things. However, one of my continued thanks is that my brother is still with us. For those unfamiliar with his story, my brother has survived multiple suicide attempts. In the recording we talk about the night of his first attempt, as well as his experience growing up with depression. It was an honor to interview my brother and I appreciate the honesty and vulnerability he brought to the table. I’m so proud of the courage it took for him to speak about suicide and depression. Please feel free to share our story.
