Overview

On January 11,
2003 my only child committed suicide. The suffocating darkness threatened to swallow me with him. How would I ever get through this?

"Tell me what to do, give me a sign, show me a way out of this," I screamed over and over again to an empty house.

Daily my pen would scribble of resources and gifts within me and the love and support all around me. I had a hard time believing it. My tightly held grief and fear did not want to let it in.
The more I wrote, the more my pen persisted. So I ventured beyond the walls I was hiding behind to test these thoughts and words.
This is the story of my journey from the dark void of fear back into the light of love, and of a pen that encouraged a new acceptance of myself and those around me--the answers to the desperate pleas I had cried out for.

Laura Flett's story is a testament to the power of writing, and to the importance - the necessity - of finding and listening to your own voice. You will read it without stopping, and then you will pick up your pen.

A powerful narrative by a woman who saves herself from becoming a victim after her son commits suicide.
