While everyone on the Internet is arguing about that Kim Davis idiot (or whatever the hell her name is), I thought I would interject with a PSA about an important subject.

This week is National Suicide Prevention Week. Did you know about every 14 minutes, someone commits suicide? I didn’t- that’s crazy, right? In a hour, 4 people around the world decide life is not worth living for whatever reason. It may not seem like a big deal but one of those 4 people could be someone you know. Someone you love could be 1 of the 96 people everyday that gives up on life because of depression, because of feeling like there’s no way out, because the support system does not exist or care for these 96 people.

It shouldn’t be this way.

Here in Southern California, we often have jumpers who leap from the Coronado Bridge. If you don’t know what that is, Google it. It is definitely not a small bridge.

This link is one place where one can find answers and help regarding suicide. No one deserves to struggle through anything alone, especially not something like this. If you need help, seek it. If you know someone in need of help, reach out.
