A friend of mine posted a suicide note today. Nobody has been able to get through to her, and I didn't hear about it until two hours after the posting. As I write this I have no clue if she's still alive, or if it's too late. I only know her in the context of the internet, but we've been friends for long time, and had even attempted a more intimate relationship. Eve is very important to me and a number of mutual friends.
I just had a death in my church family, from an accidental prescription drug overdose. He was 40, he'd lived a hard life and things were just starting to look up for him. I didn't know him well, but I was starting to get to know him better. I don't know if I can consider him a friend, but I liked him and his death has saddened me. He reminded me a lot of my uncle, who I lost last January. I am also dealing with the death of my great grandmother who died in November. At the risk of sounding incredibly self-focused, I don't know how much more death I can deal with right now.
I guess what I'm wanting to ask for is prayer for Eve if it's not too late...and if it is, then for those left behind. Thanks everybody.
EDIT: I got an e-mail from Eve at 10:44 this morning. She's alive. I won't go into too many details, but her dad found her and put it together before she could do any harm to herself. It's going to be a long and hard process putting her back together, but I think we can take it from here.
Man will never be truly free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest.
