Language matters when discussing the issue
I wanted to respond to Kathleen Gilligan’s thoughtful and informative letter (“Our language should reflect kindness and compassion,” Aug, 27).
First of all, my deepest, heartfelt sympathy goes out to her for the unspeakable loss of her treasured son.
The phrase ‘’committed suicide” has always seemed wrong to me for some reason, and I’m grateful to have been shown a more compassionate way to speak.
May Kathleen and her family be held and comforted in the loving and supportive arms of this island tribe.
