At 17 I tried to end my life (I had been molested by my step-father for 8 years) He called himself "a man of God" and told me no one would believe me over him. I believed the pain & humiliation I was struggling through was stronger than I was. Today we are losing too many children to suicide because they too believe it is the only way they can escape their pain. As I was drifting away, from the handful of pills I had taken, I saw a little girl standing before me and tell me I needed to stay. She said "You are stronger than you know."
I have written my story of abuse and attempted suicide and I am currently in the process of producing it into a short 5 minute video that can be shared with our youth who are in danger of attempting to take their own lives. I am asking for your assistance so I may pay the cast & crew for all their amazing work, feed them, purchase the needed insurance and post production distribution. I am currently working with a local production company, Totally Serious Productions. Please donate and help us save a life.
