Murder, homicide, disease, suicide – death touches all

3 critical actions you might take this memorial day (CW):

1 Get help if you need it. There is no shame in seeking help. Resources are available, including the crisis line (988), emergency rooms, and mental health apps like Unwinding Anxiety and Waking Up. Medication and treatments like Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) offer hope and healing.

2 Connect others to help if they need it. Be a lifeline for those around you. Encourage friends and family to access available resources. Sometimes, a small nudge can make a world of difference.

3 Contribute to help others if you can. Support initiatives that provide free services to Gold Star families and service members. Charitable contributions can fund treatments like TMS, making them accessible to those in need.

More words:

As we honor Memorial Day, our hearts are heavy with reflection and remembrance. This day isn’t just about barbecues and beach trips; it’s a solemn occasion to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country. But death in the line of duty is not the only kind we should remember. Death touches all, whether through combat, illness, or the silent battles fought within one’s mind. Today, I urge you to join me in expanding our remembrance to include all those who have faced these ultimate challenges.

My journey with loss has been marked by poignant experiences. In addition to the deaths by IED of Sgt Hrbek and LCpl Wilson, of civilians whose name I dont know, and that by gunshot wound, possibly murder of LtCol Palmer; that of Cpl. Shea, who died by suicide, lingers. His death close to Mother’s Day brought a sharp reminder of the silent struggles many endure. A mother in my neighborhood also chose to end her life, leaving behind meticulous notes for her loved ones. These moments are stark reminders that we must address the unspoken pain that leads to such tragedies.

In a world where technology often feels overwhelming, it’s crucial to leverage it for good. From crisis hotlines to mental health apps, technology can be a vital tool in accessing immediate care. Let’s use these advancements to our advantage and break down barriers to seeking help.

As we honor those who have fallen in service, let’s extend our compassion to all who struggle with unseen battles. Memorial Day should remind us not just of the heroic deaths in combat but also of those who have succumbed to the pressures of life and the mental health challenges that accompany it.

Thank you for your attention and for joining me in this important reflection. Remember, seeking help, connecting others to help, and contributing to support services are acts of bravery and compassion. Let’s make every day a step towards healing and support.

Have a peaceful Memorial Day. Together, let’s ensure no one faces their battles alone.
