A simple hug©

Sometimes, sadness becomes so overwhelming that some can’t see tomorrow.

Sometimes, all one needs to open their eyes is a hug from someone they love.

Give yourself the power to be that someone.

If you are in need of the hug, receive it with open arms.

Read about Colin Applegate’s struggle of losing his brother to depression here

This is truly an epidemic. I personally lost someone very close to me due to depression. He chose to take his own life. For years I blamed myself. Sometimes when I’m alone and happy, I find myself feeling guilty and thinking of him, and wishing that things were different. When someone really makes up their mind to end things, there is almost nothing we can do to stop them, they will just wait until we are not looking. Sometimes they wait for us to helplessly watch them slip away from us. The pain is never ending, the most important thing to remember is that it’s not your fault. If you know someone who is suffering from depression, urge them to seek help or bring help to them. Someday they will thank you for it and if not, at least you know you did everything you could. There are some things that we just don’t have the power to change.

On Sept. 25, 2012, Hawa Bah called 911 to ask for help getting her depressed son, Mohamed, to a hospital for medical care. But it wasn’t an ambulance that showed up, it was armed New York City police officers.

“I didn’t call police because he had done nothing wrong,” Bah told reporters on Monday.

But Bah says that despite her requests that the officers leave her son’s apartment, they forced their way in and, after a confrontation in which police allege Bah lunged at the officers with a knife, shot and killed 28-year-old Mohamed.
