September is suicide awareness and prevention month. To honor the lives lost to suicide and support survivors, we will walk in silence. We will meet at the City Hall Courtyard and march on the sidewalks. When we return, individuals can share stories, thoughts, prayers, etc. Feel free to bring signs to hold since this is a silent march, and water to stay hydrated. Please wear a mask or respect everyones personal space. Check up on your loved ones, know the signs, and stop the stigma. Stay strong.
