in preparation for world suicide prevention today, i listened to some tweets. and then I listened to my heart’s response and wrote it down:
spread the word, save lives, get people talking!
yes, let’s TALK about it! who can YOU talk to about this today? and not just on world suicide prevention day.
today is world suicide prevention day. make sure everyone knows you’ll listen and that they’re important.
in a way, people kill themselves because they feel their lives have lost value, or sadder even, never had value. who can we tell today that it matters to us that they are alive?
suicide has affected our family, zero words to explain the pain. it never goes away. they shall be loved and remembered always.
who can we bless today, in silence even, who has lost a loved one? because words – words may just not do the job.
we have the power to change and reduce the stigma of suicide and mental illness, and we need people to talk about it without judgment or fear
power – i mean the power that rises strongly from within, often from a place we didn’t know could be a source. that strong, good power inside – what can you do today to nurture it?
you know what pisses me off? suicide. i am so fucking angry right now. two friends last year, and a close friend’s friend this week.
if we pretend the anger doesn’t exist, if we’re just meek and sad and ignore the fury that can come with surviving someone else’s suicide – that’s not going to help. how can we help this anger be healthy and productive?
today is world #suicide prevention day – get to know the signs, how you can help and how you can give help!
what do you know about signs of suicide?
today is world suicide prevention day. so everybody out there, before you do anything rash, just remember : somebody loves you.
somebody loves you. somebody loves you. somebody loves you. keep saying it. maybe right now you don’t believe it’s true. keep saying it anyway. hear the words. taste them. write them down and look at them. a mantra: somebody lives you. somebody loves you.
today is world suicide prevention day! please hold hands n spread the message……….let us save LIFE!!!!!
hold hands! whose hand can you hold today? who can you get just a tad closer to today?
u guys shld write the word love on ur arm because this week is suicide prevention week 🙂
love on my arm. so i don’t forget it. it’s so easy to forget. love. love. love. somebody loves me.
out of the darkness! take part, get the word out bout suicide. don’t wait to lose a best friend like i did to realize it is real.
don’t wait! death moves so fast. who have you been afraid to tell that you love them? is it time today to finally say it?
everyone wear something yellow tomorrow please! spread the word; suicide prevention <3
imagine – we all wear the clothes of life.
top parental worries: kidnapping, school snipers & terrorists. actual highest childhood risks: car accidents, homicide, abuse & suicide.
just imagine: knowledge can prevent lives. what are the assumptions and illusions that keep us away from life today?
light a candle near a window at 8pm on world suicide prevention day sept 10th
a candle in the window: you are important to me. i’ll wait for you. see the light? we’re waiting for you, to come home, to come back into the warm embrace
gay & transgender youth are 4 times more likely to attempt suicide then their straight peers.
the fear and shame and loneliness of “being other” kills. who can i call my brother today?
