Anthony Bourdain has passed away from what is being reported as suicide. From all accounts, he was a fantastic person who spoke his truth wherever he went. He was honest and reveled in teaching people about new things through curiosity and humor; he was a gifted storyteller. And best of all, he was an advocate of world and its people. All people.
If you need help and/or are contemplating suicide, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. Please do not hesitate to call.
