Hello everyone! I hope you are having a great Sunday.
I wanted to quickly share an opinion piece I wrote for my hometown paper, the Hartford Courant:
I wrote the piece on a whim, after learning about the suicide of Anthony Bourdain, who I was a big fan of and got the chance to meet back in 2012. There is a lot of despair in the world today and I felt – I hoped – that by sharing my story, I could show others that what helped me through my struggles was not some innate desire or ability, but rather a skill that everyone has – empathy. It’s a skill worth fighting for, even in this broken world.
I hope you like it!

Love your piece in the Courant Chris. I admire your strength and wisdom,
Excellent article Chris. I’m sure you helped at least one person who needed to read it that day.
Thank you Ray!

Beautiful and inspiring! Thank you so much for sharing! I needed to hear this. I shared it with my group – Montana Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Group.
