SUICIDE

It is our goal to bring awareness to suicide prevention — the signs and risk factors — so that this type of tragedy can be avoided.  Help us spread the word about suicide prevention, mental health issues and how suicide loss survivors can be helped.   

Please start tough conversations. Please appreciate the people around you. Please be mindful of the fact that other people are fighting internal battles of which you may be unaware. Please ask for help when you need it. Nearly all of us need help at some point in our lives and there is no shame in asking or offering.

Suicide is NOT the answer, yet it is the second leading cause of death for ages 10-24. In fact, more teenagers and young adults die from suicide than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, stroke, pneumonia, influenza, and chronic lung disease, COMBINED. These numbers compel us to act because suicide’s effects are a devastating nightmare that no person should experience. We’ve learned about suicide the hard way, but with education, this kind of tragedy can be avoided.

Sadly, we know that our story is not uncommon, and it teaches us that there is much more that must be done to study and prevent suicide. Suicide is a complicated issue, and without a group effort, we have no hope of understanding and stopping it. As a family, we have joined the fight against suicide, and we would love for you to join it with us.

“Of all the forces that make for a better world, none is so powerful as hope.
With hope, one can think, one can work, one can dream.
If you have hope, you have everything.”

I honor the place in you in which the universe dwells.

I honor the place in you, which is of love, of peace, of light and of truth.

When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are one.
