After Suicide: What I Wish I Could Say To My Son Daniel

Daniel Lynn Keane

Why didn't you answer our calls that night? We couldn't figure out why you hadn't come home for dinner. When did you last think about your family that terrible night? Did you consider, even for a moment, that our lives would be a living hell after you were gone? Why didn't you tell us that you hated who you had become? You had lost hope. Despite all of the good in your life, I think there was a layer of fear and uncertainty that left you adrift. If we had any idea about your struggles at university or college, we would have supported you. But of course you didn't want to disappoint us. You despised the fact that you were lying to us and so you unleashed the anger on yourself, which ended with your suicide.
