my ascension

if emma .. is gone.. nobody has to worry about her anymore

young people don’t want to die.. they want the pain to go away

maté addiction law: in short, it is a forlorn attempt to solve the problem of human pain.. hence my mantra.. ‘the question is not why the addiction, but why the pain’Gabor Maté

(after suicide) your pain was gone but ours just began

for every 1 person that dies by suicide.. 280 others seriously consider it but do not

not sure how you’d pinpoint those numbers .. but yeah

silence will never keep us safe

suicide epidemic that is taking lives of 20 young people a day in the us.. 7,618 young people under 25 died by Suicide in the U.S. in 2018.

On June 7, 2017 Emma Benoit decided her life wasn’t worth living anymore. It was the summer before her senior year of high school and on the outside her life looked perfect. She was a stunning varsity cheerleader with a supportive family and lots of friends, but on the inside she was filled with darkness, depression and anxiety, and had never told a soul about it. A series of miracles saved her life, but a self-inflicted gunshot wound resulted in a spinal cord injury that left her paralyzed. Although extremely tragic, the incident propelled her on a mission to use her painful experience and ongoing recovery to help others find hope, while shining more light on the suicide epidemic that is taking the lives of 20 young people a day in the United States. In addition to Emma’s inspiring story of recovery, the film also shares the stories of two remarkable young people who didn’t survive their attempts; and we learn first hand from their families, friends, school officials and suicide prevention experts about the devastating impact suicides have on those who are left behind.
