“To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
No more; and, by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to, ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there’s the rub.”
― William Shakespeare, Hamlet
In British Columbia, we lost 14 First Responders to Suicide in 2017.
In 2018, we've lost already three . . .
That's 17 brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, husbands, wives, fathers, sons, daughters, grand-parents . . .
The Trauma Recovery Blog honours all . . .
These are workplace deaths . . .
Every One . . . . .
I mourn this day with family and peers.
