I am not sure if this will be seen, but wanted to take a moment to thank Pete for his discussion about suicide and providing some personal light on the subject. I lost a dear friend a few years ago to suicide; she was the funniest, brightest star in our group of friends, filled with unconditional love for everyone. It still rocks me to this day in unexpected ways. I also work in the world of special education, and have a lot of students who struggle with their mental health, and even for middle schoolers this can become all too real. It was, in a way, therapeutic to hear a conversation about this subject without shying away from it. I appreciate, always, the honesty that the podcasts bring. Thank you for your openness, Pete, and for being a voice for those who maybe are unable to put some of these issues into words.
