I had a post ready to go today, but it just did not seem appropriate in the light of this week's tragedies.
Instead I would like to say that even when life seems hopeless the dawn always comes. If you are struggling with depression reach out to someone. You don't have to do this alone.
If you know someone who has depression then reach out to them and check in with them. Sometimes when you are in the midst of depression it is really hard to pick up the phone and it means the world when someone listens.
Be kind to yourselves.
