To the editor: Statistics say that someone in Iowa today will die by suicide. However, if the person who died was your family member, you would know for certain that the death was not just a number. Whether suicide rates are going up or down doesn't matter to you.'The only thing you know is that this awful event has torn your life apart. And whether you live in Norwalk or New York City, the trag- edy ripples through your community as well. If you have lost someone to suicide, there are prob- ably days when you suffer silently, because nobody knows what to say; or because friends are afraid of say- ing the wrong thing. There are probably other days when you explode in anger for no apparent reason. Whether you lost a child, a parent, a friend, or a spouse, you find that you don't know what to do next. People who have survived the loss of a loved one to suicide have found help by turning to others who have been through the same experience. They understand the grief. They understand the guilt, and the anger and con- fusion. Every year, there is an opportunity to learn that you can heal with the help of others who have been where you are. You can live life again. There is hope. Across the country, people gather for the American Founda- tion for Suicide Prevention's Survivors of Suicide Day of Conferences. Please join us: Saturda Nov. 19 10 a.m.-3 p:m.
