Thank you, Krista Tippett, for providing the link to these two videos. I'd heard of this project but had not yet viewed Dan's video. As I listened to these stories my mind replayed events in my mind that are similar to the events these gentlemen retold. Many of us have not only contemplated suicide but made the attempt. Fortunately, some of us have family members that intervened. Until we are fully equal in our society, perhaps becoming "surrogate" family to troubled gay youth, suicides will become a thing of the past. They need to know that someone believes in them.
