I never thought I'd start a thread about the color purple
#1
I hate that word/color, thanks to that green man NightRyder.

Anyways, I'm sure you all heard of Richardson's daughter and her tragic battle with depression that ended with her committing suicide. Purple was her favourite colour and the following link has enough purple references to keep some of the purple obsessed posters happy. On a serious note, can you imagine what Richardson and his family must have gone though. Good on him for talking and doing something about it. Hopefully it will save some lives.

@ bchippie

Good on you for starting this thread in honour of the Luke Richardson story.
It is very compelling and sadly authentic.
Love the socks !

There have been plenty of discussion about that movie already

I had not previously been aware of this story so thanks for posting, bchippie.

It's a tragedy, but maybe some good can come of the Richardson's efforts to raise awareness. It's a topic that definitely needs to be talked about.

Agreed, thanks for posting. No purple jokes; absolutely something that needs to be talked more about.

For me, it's the inner strength of a Luke Richardson that is so compelling 
- the drive to find a path forward, and the courage to take it.  

Our sons have lost friends due to various causes - former teammates, 
schoolmates, kids who came to our home, all with good hearts - 
and I have marvelled at their strength in offering messages 
of adieu via social media, or in person to the families. 
Can only imagine that multiplying that by a factor of 1000 may 
begin to approximate the paths of parents, and of families, 
in navigating such deep and immense difficulty.

The respect shown in these threads is worthy of recognition.
Well done, RATW.
