    Many people suffer loss of their close ones but not all of them have the strength to get up from that phase and do something for the society so that others won't have to go through it and his sister made this effort. Hats off to you 👏👍

    I completely understand what you are going through. I lost my niece in March 2020 due to a big medical negligence . She was just 22. We're still mourning and can't overcome this tragedy. My brother is half dead after losing her daughter. Wish you loads of courage and hope you could handle this. I know it's very hard.

    We don't need to know the answer to why "suicide" but how we can help prevent it.

    Wow.....I’m sorry for the loss of her dear brother. No one should be ashamed of what happened and I’m so very thankful she started this. To know someone was in so much pain....we do need to pull together and be there for each other and remember that you are never alone.
