The news hit me hard, like an a large wave from the ocean washing over me. A family member informed me that earlier in the day, right after deleting her Facebook page, my cousin committed suicide by overdosing on pills. She had just become a grandmother, and was so proud of both her daughter and new granddaughter. There were indications of depression, but if I could only have understood the depth of her pain, what she was thinking in her final moments. I wish she knew her life had more meaning than just a drop of water in the ocean.
