Lesson #4: Prayer for the Ultimate Loss

Richard Jeni

Prayer is always my first response when I hear about the deaths of people who ran out of hope, because I myself knocked on death's door so many times. To the families of comedian Richard Jeni (pictured) and "Boston" lead singer Brad Delp, who both recently committed suicide, I extend my love and support. I pray that Richard and Brad have found their peace, and I pray that you might find strength and comfort in knowing that so many of us depressives join you in your sadness, in your grief, and in your fight for this cause.
