We have lost on this earth a creative, beautiful, strong, loving, and, yet, deeply wounded young lady. Amber Craig died by suicide on the morning of May 25, 2005. She was exactly 14 and a half years old. Through her action she devastated a community and unknowingly took from us the pleasure of loving her.

Amber was an avid soccer player, a good student, and a loving friend. She was the keeper and co-captain for her club soccer team and keeper for El Dorado High School. As a freshman she played varsity soccer and still had time for her family, her boyfriend and her friends. She was silly. She was bold. She was encouraging. She was determined. She was… Amber.

We now know, Amber was also profoundly sad and didn’t believe that anyone else had felt the way that she did. She didn’t reach out for the help that was available. She masked her pain in the midst all her talents and accomplishments. She hid her pain from a community of people who truly loved her. Amber’s inability to share her pain and struggle has tragically affected those who loved her deeply. 

Please reach out. You are important. You have something to contribute to this world. You are loved.
