Clermont County's 20th Annual Candlelight Vigil
Yesterday evening, as Editor of The Sun, I was honored to speak at Clermont County's 20th annual candlelight vigil to remember those lost to suicide over the previous year. I shared my own struggles with depression and suicidal thoughts.
You may need headphones because the phone recording the event is far away from where we are speaking, but nonetheless, I hope anyone that takes the time to listen to my speech, it helps them.

Charlie and Grace Bailey retired after 40 years of volunteering
Yesterday at Mercy Clermont Hospital, Charlie and Grace Bailey retired after 40 years of volunteer service and were celebrated by the hospital. The couple also recently celebrated 75 years of marriage.
Here is Charlie, 99, talking to Mercy about volunteering. It can be hard to hear because of side chatter, but at one point, Charlie says to those thinking about volunteering, "I would say, go ahead, I think that's good, it'll not only help you here, but it will help you when you die. Our blessed Lord will say, 'What did you do with your time?' And it'll say, 'I volunteered at the hospital.'"
