The Day my Brother Took His Life Was Devastating: Suicide Prevention - Concert for Life

Even though it's 16 years ago now since my brother ended his life, as I type this it still brings a tear to my eye, however this is a topic that we as a society can't ignore. I'm talking about suicide. My brother was 34 years of age when he died.

This beautiful video was made on 21st August between 7:30am - 9:30am at Macquarie Lighthouse, Old South Head Rd, Vaucluse. There were up to up to 100 members of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra playing their instruments along the cliff line to help bring awareness to Suicide Prevention Day which is on 10th September.
