For Want Of A Nail

As a United States Army Veteran, I ask that you remember all who have given their lives in the wars that have built our great nation.  We can agree that we would live in no other place even with our differences.  We can agree that we want the best for our children and that we do not wish for them to endure the hardships of our own past or those of our human neighbors.

The New Normal

My name is Bob Cristello, and I am a parent of suicide. In the early morning hours of August 16, 2017, my son, Anthony, took his own life at the age of thirty-five. Whatever I was before that day died with my son. Whatever I became after that day is also dead, and I have been born anew.
