Stigma of mental illness in family

I really appreciated your comments in a recent podcast in which you answered a question about adopting a child, and concerns about mental health issues history in the parents of the children. My mother was an alcoholic who committed suicide when I was 11. My father died when I was 6 so my two sisters and I were left orphans. I can't tell you how many times I've read or heard that children of parents who committed suicide are more likely to commit suicide. I actually once had a pastor ask me if I had ever tried to committ suicide, after I told him my mother had.. I was expecting to receive sympathy from him and maybe praise that I had survived such a difficult childhood, and yet all he could do is assume that I myself had been suicidal. I am incredibly proud of myself that I survived and thrived after such a bad childhood and am insulted when people assume that I have the same problems as my mother. (II think part of my mother's problem might have been that she was in a car accident when she was 24 and suffered a severe concussion.) My sisters and I are all now in our 60s and are doing well, none of us have ever tried to commit suicide, none of us are alcoholics. Of course I have had lots of therapy to help with PTSD, I go to support groups for children of alcoholics,all of which has been incredibly healing, but I think also my sisters and I are just incredibly resilient people and I think rather than being stigmatized because of our mother's mental health issues, we should be praised for having survived and thrived after having had such a difficult childhood! It was so wonderful to hear you, basically say the same thing in your podcast. It was so comforting to hear and I hope that people really listened and realize that children should not be stigmatized by their parent's mental health issues! Thank you and God Bless you!

Why?

Why was it that Dr Amen cut short Dr. Gordon discussing the trauma suffered by the Palestinian children who lost their parents during the bombing of Gaza. Dr. Amen said they would take a break to come back to discuss this more but the podcast interview was stopped afterwards. I’d like an answer to this.
