I was scouring Facebook and noticed a link to this Train video premiere today. I have always liked Train, but I do tire of the radio stations playing a popular song of theirs over and over, like 100 times a day. Those darn pop radio stations. Anyway, as the USA Today article states, this video was created in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month to call attention to the issue of teen suicide.
Pat Monahan states, “The song is about the deep losses in my life, as most of us have also experienced.”
It is so important to remember how precious life is. Even on really really bad days, I am happy to be alive and I am happy for the day Blue Eyes was born, and for every day I have been able to share with him, and I desperately miss the people we have lost, people we have lost to suicide. I am happy for great friendships, my beautiful sons, and my amazing siblings, and my aging parents who taught me to love people with everything I’ve got.
Okay, I’m gonna go run and hug Sammy and Blue Eyes now. Peace.
