We’re finally here, after four months of preparation. It’s a little surreal. And it also feels exactly right. Yesterday we went through a suicide prevention training and then got to meet with some people whose lives have been effected by suicide. The beauty of Northern Ireland and the seemingly up-beat nature of the people do not match with the gravity of the topics. It’s a strange experience so far, but I expect we will learn a lot from it, even if I don’t know exactly what that is yet.
