I saw the following sign on the way home from the store yesterday, and while I realize that it's not a funny topic (AT ALL), I also wonder if it could have been phrased just a bit differently because - really - how does this happen:

Survivors of Suicide - meeting Wednesday, 7pm, at Dow James

I'm not stupid - I'm sure that they meant "Survivors of Attempted Suicide" or something like "Family Members Affected by Suicide" or etc. And, again, I KNOW that it's not funny. It's not even a little bit funny because someone is really, honestly, always grieving (my apologies to Lish, and I've had two friends commit suicide, so REALLY, it's not funny) - but I still laughed at the sign.

Does that make me a bad person? Probably.

It is funny. No apology needed.
