This is a difficult entry for me to write for many reasons. The main reason being that this is the most personal thing I could ever share; however, I believe sharing our struggles with each other could potentially make all the difference.
I recently came across Please Don't Jump, a Facebook page created in the virtual effort to save a life. A postcard was submitted to PostSecret from an anonymous sender in San Francisco who was/is contemplating jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge. Having considered jumping myself several times before, I know firsthand the overwhelming feeling of hopelessness can be unbearable. The first time I attempted suicide was at 14 after being bullied.
Whether or not you know someone who you suspect to be suicidal, this campaign is a great reminder to be ready and able to help a friend or a stranger in need. You never know what someone's situation might be or what demons they may be struggling with. Suicidal people are often adept at hiding their real feelings and suffer in silence, as was, and sometimes still is, the case for me.
