Darkness Into Light

A Nation's Response
  • By Joan Freeman
Product Description
Darkness into Light: A Nation's Response tells the story of the birth of a national and international movement that, every year, brings hundreds of thousands of people together to walk and remember those who have died by suicide. Taking place at dawn on a Saturday in May, this annual fundraising event in aid of Pieta House has raised almost 29 million for suicide prevention, both at home and abroad. Thirteen years after the first walk, Joan Freeman recounts how this extraordinary event began and reflects on what it means to the people of Ireland today.

While this walk began with one woman, it quickly belonged to many, as people from all over Ireland raised funds and organized so that a Darkness into Light walk could take place in their town or city. The book pays homage to these volunteers who, often driven by their own grief, were determined to soothe the pain of others. This determination went on to capture the imaginations of people throughout Ireland and around the world.

With a foreword by Taoiseach Micheál Martin and an afterword by Tánaiste Leo Varadkar, Darkness into Light: A Nation's Response provides a deeply moving account of how a single idea, along with an unwavering belief, can become a catalyst for real societal change.
