BENEFITING: ALLIANCE OF HOPE FOR SUICIDE SURVIVORS
EVENT DATE: Jul 31, 2014
I SURVIVED SUICIDE
I received a friend request on Facebook this past July 1st from a handsome, successful, young philanthropist. We never had the chance to meet in person because weeks later he committed suicide. I'm tired of hearing about this and doing nothing; specially, being one who confronted suicide during his teenage years. Next July 14, I'm turning 36. I would've not enjoyed the last 15 years of life. I've posted pictures of my happy face and wonderful experiences I've lived to remind me that with hard work and sacrifices, many things can be accomplished and that life is beautiful regardless. We should not be ashamed of those who lost their battle against this sad act of despair. Instead, we should get more involved and be nicer to one another because we never know when the other person is suffering more than us. Suicide has many faces. Please, donate and share my message. Thank you for honoring my birthday wish and making his friendship request valuable.
