It was a tough week here at Sweet Glitter Rock. Two inspirations and people we looked up to both took their own lives and left a void in this world.
Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain were both inspirational in different ways. But, any time people can bring others together, whether it is over fashion and handbags or food, without caring about race, age, economic background or religion is always a good thing. They will be missed in many ways and we can't imagine the pain their families are feeling.
We also need to keep in mind that while the celebrity suicides get the headlines, there are many more regular families dealing with this sad issue. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US and on the rise. Almost 45,000 people commit suicide yearly. 123 PER DAY.
Please, if you or anyone you know is even considering it, please reach out. Reach out to friends and families. People do care and love. Please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
