Dying from Suicide is becoming an epidemic...not only should we STOMP, we should be screaming it from the rooftops...Mental Illness is not a stigma, nothing to be ashamed of...for being tough and brave for so long takes courage and strength. I am participating in this walk in honor of my wonderful amazing friend, true confidant, Joel Robert Peterson who lost his battle 2 years ago to suicide. I myself struggle with depression and Anxiety, Panic Attacks, nobody understood his pain more than I! Joel was one person who helped me get through some pretty hard days and brought me back to my faith and trust in our Saviour Jesus Christ. But I could not get him through his dark time. From the moment I found him that faitful day in March, I promised myself and him there would not be a day that would go by that I would not keep his memory alive and doing everything in my power to honor his life until I take my last breath. He always called me "Daisy" and would randomly pick Daisy's on our walks together to give to me...he often called me "ACDC," and every email started that way... which he told me, meant Awesome Cindy/Daisy Cindy (cuz he couldnt decide which he liked and ACDC was from our errra LOL). I am always the one that takes care of others before myself, he knew that, and often told me "You do LOTS for so many!" Hence the name "DAISY DO LOTS" for this team (vs Daisy do little LOL!!!!!)" I will continue doing LOTS because I could not do anything in the end to save him from "His problems he couldn't resolve" here on earth!" So, enjoy life in heaven my friend, rest easy..."ACDC" has it from here ~ even though going through this life is so very hard without you phisically here..."Nothing, can separate us from the love of God in Christ. Romans 8:38-39."
