HEROES Week~ March On!

Well, it's been a very good HEROES Week, and now it's time to say goodbye. But before that, it's time for one last word to say.

We've blogged about being a HERO and taking a STAND, stopping bullying in its tracks, forgiveness, and going beyond just standing up--- actually being a friend. Now, it's time to move on!


So, many of us have been bullied before, or at least it felt like it. And eventually, most of us learned to move on. The others.... well, we don't like to talk about that. And that's our problem.


Today is Suicide Awareness Day. Perfect time to write love on your arms. Also a perfect day for the last day of HEROES Week... and that totally was NOT planned ahead of time.

We don't like to talk about suicide. We don't want to talk about it, so many times we don't talk about it. And even when we do, it feels like a tragedy in the distance that rarely happens.

It happens. Really. And it can happen to you.

My friend Cheyenne knows someone who killed himself. She doesn't really like talking about it, so that's pretty much all I know that I can tell you.

Pain is what it causes. And that's it. You take your life, you ruin someone else's.

You think people wouldn't care if you died, but think: is that really true? There are people who love you. Sure, maybe it's not a particular guy/girl, but you are loved. As a Christian, I believe there is a God out there who loves me, and I believe that He loves you, too. Just live another day... it will be worth living, I promise. You have my word. My promise.

You may be asking why...
And this is why.
