The main intent of this book is for suicide prevention. It's story about my brother who committed suicide when he was sixteen and an assortment of suicides and attempts while working in the mental health system. One area of suicide prevention that is often overlooked is what happens to a suicidal person, if there was such a thing as an afterlife. Part of my story entails that and just trying to understand the impulses of suicide. What thoughts go into creating the impulses of a suicide, and how it affects those left behind.

Dillan Kane gives his own account of his brother's suicide at the age of 16. He talks about memories with his brother, his own feelings and fears, as well as the impact it had on his own life.
Far too often, as in this case, suicide is overlooked. In hindsight all the signs were there but when in the moment the signs become invisible.
While reading and after completion of this book, I had to personally take a long and hard look at suicide. I've known people that committed suicide and looking back at their lives prior to the act the signs were there. They wanted a way out of their current situation and the only way they felt they could do it is through death.
I encourage you to read this book. If you know someone that commitment suicide it will give you more insight as to what led him or her to the final decision. If you don't, then I encourage you to read it anyway. The information and knowledge presented may be the catalyst for you to see the warning signs of someone you do know that is contemplating ending the present life.
