A postcard to PostSecret starts a small movement to save a life

PostSecret.com has become a phenomenon of sorts over the last few years.  Thousand’s of people have sent in their secrets anonymously to Frank Warren since he started this amazing postcard-art project over 5 years ago.  Heartfelt postcards full of love and sadness, hope and misery have been delivered to his doorstep in Maryland every day, and each Sunday Frank chooses a handful and posts them on his website.

A couple weeks ago one such postcard sent in for Frank to post was from someone in San Francisco, someone who felt that life wasn’t worth living anymore, someone who didn’t feel wanted or loved or needed.  Someone who just so happens to be in this country illegally and felt unworthy, they felt that the only thing left for them was to jump from the Golden Gate bridge.

Most people would have looked over the postcards that Frank put up and then moved on with their lives.  Not Katelyn Roberts. Katelyn lives in San Francisco and couldn’t imagine not doing anything, she couldn’t imagine not trying to help, she couldn’t sit by and not try to make a difference. She turned to Facebook and made a page and named it simply “please don’t jump” . Before long there were hundreds of visitors and thousands voicing their support by becoming members of the page.  Katelyn and a handful of dedicated members decided upon a beautiful day in June to meet on the Golden Gate bridge to show their love and support for all the nameless people who think they need to end their lives.

Below is the video that Katelyn made that spectacular day in June. The day that everyone forgot about themselves and the trivial things going on in their own lives and gathered together with love in their hearts for a perfect stranger.

Thank you Katelyn, it’s people like you that really make a difference.

The name of the song is called “Song for You” by Alexi Murdoch. I don’t think a more perfect song could have been chosen.

Another video that Katelyn put together shows the outpouring of love and concern for the person that sent in that postcard, people from around the world.  Where ever you are, when you feel the most alone, know that your life matters, that people really do care …

please dont jump.

5 Stages of Grief ~ Diane Birch

5 Stages of Grief ~ Diane Birch

Diane Birch takes us through the 5 Stage of Grief in this beautiful song of hers Nothing But a Miracle, from her new album titled Bible Belt. This song really touched me as did the video. It reminds us that even in the most difficult times, things change, they get better, we just need to hang on. We can find beauty in music and understanding with our friends and family and sometimes even strangers.

Trevor Project benefits from book sales

Susan Parker a friend of The Trevor Project has written a new memoir titled Walking in the Deep End.  This is an authentic, sincere account of the difficulties she faced as an 11 year child navigating her way through a dysfunctional family, on through her college years dealing with depression and bulimia.

sp

Kirkus Discoveries writes….  “Parker spent her college years using binge-eating as an emotional crutch and developed a serious case of bulimia, with which she struggled for years. The memoir’s last third is by far the most truthful and endearing segment, as readers meet the now-41-year-old mother Parker, in the process of a messy divorce triggered by the discovery that she is gay. Even in the face of endless challenges, the author remains optimistic, looking toward her spirituality to guide her through dark times. She shows a gift for storytelling, and as a result, the book is compelling and enthralling.”

On October 9, 2009 Amazon will have Susan’s book available. Anyone who orders a copy of the book this day will have the opportunity to designate The Trevor Project to receive a portion of the proceeds. Your purchase will automatically enter you into a drawing to win one of five autographed copies of the book as well as one of three writing journals.

The author will also be talking to readers via Sype, Twitter and Facebook.
