The Bigger Purpose with guest host Carl David

Carl David

Show Description:
"The Bigger Purpose"
Bader Field, Carl's latest book, began as homage to his father, Samuel David, the legendary art dealer whose life was cut short by a major coronary at the young age of 58.  As the book developed, a greater purpose emerged.  The fabric of the David family was woven with the tragic loss of one of their sons to suicide.  Bruce, at the tender age of twenty-two took his own life leaving behind a trail of horror and devastation.  No note, no clues, completely shocking his family with a permanently unresolved question as to why.  Although the reason matters not, for it wouldn't bring him back, it would perhaps have offered some insight and understanding, albeit little comprehension or solace.

Carl recognized his need to open a wide reaching dialogue, showing the realistic nightmare of suicide, having lived through it.  As a survivor, he is on a dedicated mission to lift the veil of shame that protects this violent act and lets it thrive.  Suicide is a leading killer of children and it needs to be stopped. Pre-teens, teens and young adults who are most vulnerable, need to know that if they are on that last edge of desperation, that there is help for them.  They are not alone, there is love and light and always a better way.  Taking one's life is a permanent solution to a temporary situation.  The wake of pain and suffering that it leaves upon family members and friends is something that needs to be seen and understood for perhaps that in itself might be a life saving measure.

This is Carl's way of paying it forward.  He is on a quest to reach out and make a difference, taking the darkest days of his own life and turning them into a path of light with the hope of saving lives....even one........
