Sublette Examiner photos from June 23, 2012

By Sue Sommers

Walkers and runners converged on the ballfields, received signs and banners, and set off on the march down the hill and through town.

 

 

 

As always, many young people came out to show support for suicide prevention and awareness.

 

Laurie and Jim Latta read the names of our many loved ones from Sublette County who have been lost to suicide.

The Garrett’s PALMS walk is a time to remember and share. It’s a place for honesty and respect.

Without actual butterflies to release, participants imagined holding them and releasing them. The symbolic gesture was even more meaningful than if real insects had been available!
