In this alternative “self-help” story, Kit Johnson takes a semi autobiographical and affectionate look at his condition, which is leavened with much humour. Commendably short in length, reflecting the short attention span that characterizes the condition, it is raw at times, excoriating in its honesty, and takes the reader on a journey of pain,joy and possible redemption. Join us for this journey of personal lows and heights!
A few decades ago Johnny Mandel penned these inspiring words:
The game of life is hard to play
I'm gonna loose it anyway
The losing card I'll someday lay
So this is all I have to say,
That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it if I please.
That song later became famous as the theme song for the movie--and, later long running T.V. show--M*A*S*H. But suicide is not painless, and it's not humorous. Baby boomers in record numbers are taking the suicide short cut to escape the anxiety, disappointment, and seemly pointlessness of life. But, is that an answer?
Greg and Margaret talk about suicide, hope, destiny--and the future. &
SUICIDE statistics have risen sharply in the United States over the last ten years, and yet it still remains a forbidden topic to speak about.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention published findings this month that indicate more people now die of suicide then of car accidents.
Why are we as a society reluctant to bring the subject out of the shadow of shame and into the light of healing?
HOST KATHY BARRETT interviews renowned Argentinian author MARTA MERAJVER-KURLAT about her book "JUST TOSS THE ASHES," a story about a successful lawyer who commits suicide and her son's journey to understand why. "Just Toss The Ashes," portrays the emotional impact that suicide has on the people left behind.
MARTA MERAJVER-KURLAT is an Argentine novelist, translator, essayist, and biographer. Her attraction to the ways in which mankind tells its own history encouraged her to undertake studies in myth, language, literature, psychology, and psychoanalysis. Accordingly, her novels Just Toss the Ashes, Los gloriosos sesenta y después, and El tramo final delve into intriguing aspects of human nature. She currently holds a permanent seminar on Tragedy and is a guest lecturer at APA (Asociación Psicoanalítica Argentina) and EFBA (Escuela Freudiana de Buenos Aires).

Suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the U.S. and the third leading cause of death among young people aged 15-24. Suicide is a major, preventable public health problem. According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, 90% of people who die by suicide have a diagnosable and treatable psychiatric disorder at the time of their death. It is our job as a society to come together in open dialogue to help erase the stigma of mental illness and suicide.
"Over the past ten years, I began putting my experiences on paper. My story, my family story, slowly began to take shape in the form of a screenplay. The script, titled Extra Innings, revolves around a family evolving together while dealing with mental illness and tragedy." Albert Dabah
