Let's talk about it. Let's stop whispering about mental illness and suicide. Two suicides -- one close to home (Cheryl Hanna, who many of us had known and loved), and another, Robin Williams (who we had known as an actor who made us laugh and sometimes cry) -- have forced us to ask, "Why?"
Each was at the prime of life -- why would they have wanted to kill themselves? We never knew, we didn't have a clue, or so it seemed.
