Unfortunately, my life has been touched by several loved ones who have taken their life recently. Its one of the things that goes with coming from a state with a high suicide rate and well...just living in this cruel world. A few weeks ago, a friend I grew up with took his own life. This morning, an old favorite single, Rhett Miller's song, "The Believer, (For Elliott Smith) popped into my head." Elliot Smith was another favorite singer who took his own life. Rhett's tribute to his friend is poignant, if you listen closely.
