Wednesday's story about my brother's suicide lived in my head for 5 years. It was too private and painful to share with the world. When I was finally ready, writing seemed like the easiest way to start talking about it.
Your response has been overwhelming. Parallel Universe was quickly shared across social media, leading to thousands of visitors. Messages poured in from people who lost a loved one, were impacted by mental illness, or struggled with issues that aren't discussed in society. A few of you shared your memories of my brother.
Your words have been profoundly healing. The more I talk about Salman, the less shame I feel. It might take me awhile to get back to all of you, but I promise to keep the conversation going.
Thank you for helping me keep the memory of my brother
