I'm haunted by the death of a girl I never met. My boss told me that the daughter of a client had committed suicide at the age of 21. She was an accomplished girl, with many academic achievements; her father is a deputy mayor and her mother a judge — a good family, everything to live for, you'd think. I can't imagine what despair could have led her to feel there was no way out, or the despair her family must feel at her loss. I ordered flowers today, to be sent to the funeral home, tears in my eyes.
