Morning Links (9/2)

I'd like to take this tiny platform to stress something that has had great personal significance to me and to many family members and friends. Depression is not a failure, it is not a weakness, it is not made up or indicative of some sort of personal deficiency or sin. It is an illness that is nearly as hard to acknowledge out loud as it is to heal. Please, if you're suffering, know that there is help and not judgment waiting.
