The week that Actor Robin Williams committed suicide was the week before Actor Lee Thompson “Jett Jackson” committed suicide. And coincidently enough these deaths occurred on my plane ride to Boston from San Diego! This is sad folks–and a true epidemic.
Depression has taken our most cherished and beloved stars.
Lets mark THIS WEEK (and this month) as #suicideawareness. If you know somebody who is going through some difficult times, give him call, a private message, or comment on their Facebook status and tell him or her, “You’re Awesome!”
Self-Hatred is the worst type of hatred. Let’s stop this virus together, before it spreads.
Thank you to those who continue to reach out to me–even when it’s least expected.
To all who reads this, I say onto you: “YOU ARE AWESOME!”
