This Hallmark Channel Television Special, Fierce Goodbye: Living in the Shadow of Suicide won four major awards in the 2005 World Fest Houston Film Festival. Folksinger Judy Collins hosts the program with the strength and sensitivity of a mother whose son died by suicide. Also featured in the video is well-known author and Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University, Kay Redfield Jamison. Theologians and scholars from the Catholic, Protestant, Jewish and Greek Orthodox traditions provide healing perspectives. Balancing the medical and theological viewpoints are the encouraging stories of families and friends. The DVD is a valuable resource for clergy and congregations who are seeking hope, comfort and ways to grow while living in the shadow of suicide.
