One Suicide is One too Many

There have been way too many suicides and acts of suicidal ideologies in our school systems here lately. Yet, we are still hearing and reading cruel comments from people such as: 

  • “They were weak!”
  •  They’re a coward!”
  • That’s one less person that I have to worry about.” 
  • “If someone wants to hurt themselves than that’s their right.”

Really? That person was someone’s brother, sister, daughter, son, friend, etc. What if you knew them? Are they still weak? It’s hard to rationalize it that way when the situation is personal, right?

You are never alone.

Race, color or creed – none of that matters when you are talking about suicide. You don’t have to know someone to feel the impact of suicide. That ripple effect carries much further than you realize.

The ripple effect and your circle of influence.

What you can do is join the fight to help save everyone from making this mistake. Suicide Intervention starts with YOU carrying about the welfare of others even if they are a complete stranger to you. Please, I beg you, help make a difference and save someone’s brother or sister. One suicide is one too many.
