A Letter to my Dad

Sept. 18, 2019 — Pause, take a breath, and know that you are loved ... Don’t do it. Advice from Air Force 1st Lt. Brad Worley who lost his dad to suicide 26 years ago. “There was so much you missed out on, and there’s so much I want to tell you,” Worley writes in a letter to his dad. “Why did you leave us so soon? So many people that loved you, why didn’t you just call one of them?” In a recently released Defense Visual Information Distribution Service video, Worley reads the letter he wrote to his dad telling him about everything he has missed, highlighting that the effects of suicide can have a lasting effect on family, friends, and communities.
