Today, I re-read the suicide letter I wrote on Thanksgiving 1993 about two minutes before my girlfriend showed up at my apartment and told me, “I’m pregnant.” She was honestly the only reason I didn’t follow through with it. Suddenly I felt I had something to live for. Today she’s my wife, and we’ve been happily married for 18 years. And my daughter, who is now a 19-year-old college student, has two younger brothers. I re-read my suicide letter every Thanksgiving as a reminder to be thankful – I am thankful I got a second chance at life. MMT
