Take Me To Church

Craig Miller _Church

Photo taken by contributor Craig A. Miller, an author, speaker, photographer, and suicide attempt survivor from Boston. For many years he struggled with OCD, extreme anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts. After a suicide attempt nearly ended his life at age 20, he became dedicated to understanding what led him to such a decision, and more importantly how he could gain control of himself and his life to ensure it would never happen again. He published a book in 2012 titled, This is How it Feels: a memoir of attempting suicide and finding life. He is a member of The Massachusetts Coalition for Suicide Prevention and regularly speaks everywhere from libraries to state conferences sharing his story and the steps he took to move forward.

About this photo: “I can honestly say that taking this photo was as peaceful as you’d imagine. I was shown the location by a good friend, but I’m not sure either of us excepted the milky way to be in perfect line with the church. You can imagine how it felt to sit in a field of flowers, in the middle of the night, viewing this scene. I hope the photo expresses this.

    Craig that picture should be in National Geographic! You never see beautiful flowers in a star picture.
