Feature length documentary Losing Grace Finding Hope coming soon.

Grieving a suicide.

What a day! 🛟

So honored to be apart of of the annual Hope Squad Conference alongside our dear friends at Grant Halliburton Foundation and The Jordan Elizabeth Harris Foundation.

Our deepest gratitude goes to the students and advisors committed to changing the culture in our schools and homes surrounding mental health. 🫶

There is a sense of shame that is unique to grieving a suicide.

“You didn’t do enough. They weren’t strong enough. Well, they chose that”

Some of it is internal, but also very much external as well.

If you have ever loss someone to suicide, you know exactly what I’m talking about.

Anyway, next week we will have our annual barrel race Making Strides for Mental Health dedicated to this cause. We will have these little ribbons available at our table for anyone that would like to honor the life of someone they loved and lost to suicide by wearing one.

This race is first and foremost about hope and resources. However, we will also use it as an opportunity to bring awareness to suicide and the impact it has had on many of us.

It shouldn’t matter how somebody died.. people deserve to be remember for how they lived.
