I tried to write about Max tonight but it made me cry so I gave up. Instead, I made this suicide prevention poster. When my webmaster wakes up tomorrow, maybe he’ll help me to put it on that side panel on the right.
Suicide prevention should be a wider campaign, with more visibility. I’ve spend a lot of time reading about it here. I wish I had known more about it, especially risk assessment. More communities should make it a priority, like San Louis Obispo, which came up with this video to reduce the stigma of mental illness.
Watching events in Egypt, I’ve been aware of how petty most of our concerns are. But it’s so uplifting to see people exercising their power! Why didn’t that happen in the US when Bush was president?!
People DO have the power to make change. The least we bloggers and our readers can do is unite to boycott the website that is poaching on the-coveted. You can write to them at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell them what you think.
Freedom of speech is a huge issue for me. So is keeping people alive.
Let’s practice being Egyptian instead of rolling over or expecting someone else to take action! I’m ready to be of service to anyone I can help.
