Assuming you can now talk about it, what was the worst day of your life?
This question from a new Deals.Wooter got me thinking about the past and things I haven't thought about in a long time.
Assuming that enough time has passed where you can share stories with strangers without getting all torn-up again, what was the worst day of your life?
This is part of one of my answers from the above linked question.
Worst day of my life: It was in high school. I found out that my best friend killed himself. He went home from basketball practice and shot himself in his room before his dad came home from work. I had just talked to him that day about rooming with him on a school trip. Then he was gone. I was a pall-bearer at his funeral. It ushered in a very dark time for me that took a very, very long time to get over.
