Kind brave soul, daughter, corporate executive, friend to the world
It was a Tuesday afternoon and I was napping after high school volleyball practice. My dad called me, and I remember answering half awake. I said, "Dad, I'm tired. Can we talk later?" He replied, " Sure, I love you." And I hung up. I t was the last time he spoke with anyone. Later that night he took his own life.
I always think back to that Tuesday afternoon when he called me, the last person he spoke with, and I hung up before saying, " I love you, too." Could those four little words have saved him? I will never know.
No one is brave all at once. You may have experienced something largely traumatic like a death, an illness. a loss. A times you may have to be braver than you feel capable of being. Just take it one step at a time and ask for help when you feel scared or uncertain. There are times when you are braver for others and when others are brave for you. We're all in this together."
PINKK on POINT: Brave is saying I love you. Do that today and spread kindness.
