Out of the Darkness Walk

Today was the Out of the Darkness Walk for suicide prevention and awareness. There were about 1,000 people there. It seemed to catch the organizers a little off guard as many of them had not preregistered. They had a little ceremony before the walk started and we did a balloon release while someone sang. Sam ended up walking with me and it was so awesome to have him there. I posted some pictures here with captions so you can get a better idea of what it was like.

A huge THANK YOU to all of you who donated in Anthony's memory. The more I learn about the organization the more I like what they are doing. Maybe next year we can get a team together to walk.

Anthony was a very competitive person so in honor of him we decided to pass as many people as we could (even though it wasn't a race). It was a very nice day and we walked for a good cause, in memory of a great person, but tonight we find ourselves really missing him and wishing he were still here.

The pictures were good. Thanks for posting. Sam, I'm glad I'm not the only krod in the family. I'm glad they gave you another balloon.
