Well I just thought id write this in memory of my Dear friend Val Jean Laduke and share it with the people that know were im coming from.
Today at 6 pm a year ago I walked into Vals room to see his lifeless body he had commited suicide, I find myself having to speak my peace & staying vocal about it & not be alone today. I find it hard to fight depresion and find peace. keep me in your prayers.
I Remember that day, as if it were yesterday. Val had called me earlier & wanted to have lunch, I stated to him that I had many things to do & places to go. He was the funniest guy you could have met always giving me parables about how you have to live life at the fullest. But something was different that day he told me, I am very sad right now & I need someone to talk to. I told him I would swing by latter & talk to him. I did
Now I went through a lot of stuff my self While in The Family I was sexualy abused several times by many different "uncles & aunties" in the cog leaving the cog & getting hooked on Drugs and deep into Depretion, In 1996 I had attemted suicide twice, slitting my wrist the first time, & walking on to I10 to oncoming traffic only to end up in the hospital with a big bill to pay, and both my fibulas broken. I thought that most people show signs, or come from worst situations than we had, I guess we all handel stress diferently.
I wish I would have been there for him, but again I can't be hard on my self.
I share this with you Reminding you to be kind to your friends be their for them even if its just 5 minutes. Today I Mourn for a good friend Val Laduke RIP
