Final Reflections: Processing grief and living happy

Suicide prevention week has been enormous for the student community to come together. I felt that when covering the "Project Semicolon" event at the Women's Center on Monday. The events that have taken place over the course of the last five days truly belong to a much larger dialogue. This week has probably been hard for some, as it may have brought to the forefront memories of those who we can no longer hear, touch or be around because they’ve been lost to suicide– I am one of them.
