Many of us have been taken aback by the apparent suicide of famed designer Kate Spade. Seems that you never know what people are going through and how they choose to deal with the pain in their lives. We do know that depression exists in and outside of the church and people are finally speaking up about it and it’s effects.

Dear Kate, Suicide killed another 120 people today and you were one of them. I am left thinking of the joy your work brought to my life through many (many) perfectly classy, flaw-disguising, fit-and-flare dresses. Thank you for hiding my insecurities so many times. I’m indescribably sorry for the pain you must have endured while simultaneously creating such beautiful things. Praying for your daughter today, and all who personally knew and loved you. Praying for the strength to keep advocating for mental health. Praying there won’t be 120 more people lost tomorrow. Sincerely, A Loyal Fan . #bemovedwithcompassion #katespade #mentalhealth #suicideawareness #suicideprevention
