My goal for being part of Stay for life was simply to try to help others through my experiences. Suicide is an epidemic today and have lost more friends than I can count. I have struggled with suicidal ideation much of my life. I've always felt like I didn't fit in to polite society. I am a misfit, an outlaw one who has always felt more comfortable on the fringes of society. As a recovering addict and alcoholic and having survived an attempted Suicide myself I know I have valuable insight that I hope by sharing can have an impact on someone else or others.

Quote: The most terrifying force comes from the hands of men who only want to be left alone. They try to mind their own, to provide for themselves and those they care about and love. They resist every impulse to fight back knowing when their hand is forced the permanent change of life that shall come from it.
