Craig A. Miller is an author, speaker, photographer, singer, suicide prevention activist, attempt survivor, and friend of mine. Craig writes and speaks with a gut-wrenching authenticity and vulnerability that is rare in people, especially men.
In his spoken word poem, “What if,” Craig beautifully shares some of the ugliest thoughts and feelings a human being can experience. I marvel at his grace and poise. I wish there weren’t many people who could relate to this poem, but there are. Maybe you are one of them. I know I am.
Craig A. Miller is the author of This is How it Feels an unflinching memoir that packs an emotional weight greater than anything I’ve read before. Craig is one of the bravest men I’ve ever met, and I know that so many men resonate with his words.
