In the next 10 Days, together we will share this free WisdomFilm (www.wisdomfilms.com...) to touch 10 Million people around the world.
• 1 out of 10 adults suffer from a depressive disorder
• 14.5% of students in grades 9-12 considered suicide this year
• 1 in 3 experience some degree of loneliness or fear
• Every forty seconds someone commits suicide
With these statistics, it is highly probable that you have a loved one who is depressed, lonely, or afraid right now and you may not even know it.
The 10 Days to Touch 10 Million campaign is an opportunity to express gratitude to our loved ones during this Thanksgiving season and share with them a free, four-minute WisdomFilm that reminds them how much their life matters and how much they have to give to the world.
Imagine if just one person who has been contemplating suicide reconsiders as a result of this campaign...
What if that one person is someone you love?

That first video puts it perfectly. I cannot express the depression i am currently going through, my wanting to change society and live with nature is put down by my parents and institutions, telling me i should consider therapy.
When they tell you that enough times, you begin to think your crazy.
After seeing this video, i no i am not.
17 years old in case you were wondering.

That was beautiful A&O. Thanks much. I've just watched the first, and heading on toward the second. Some very profound and thought-provoking ideas within. "we don't fear being inadequate; we fear that we are powerful beyond measure." Interesting.
As an aside, for some reason, videos that have fast-motion clouds usually disturb me for some reason. This one....... no problem. weird, huh?
Thanks for the offering

Life is the journey of filling an addiction. That addiction could be of many things...fishing, working out, your career, love life, you name it.
Depressed people have lost their addiction. They do not know what they want anymore.
Sometimes, all they need is a little love, and that will set them back on path to the stars.

Suicide is a deep subject because it is personal and also an escape route out of life.
Sadly I do think of this quote from that bloody movie Twilight "death is easy, peaceful. Living is harder" ... So yeah. Think of life as a game at times and choose the hard way because it is more fun in the end (maybe). I can only speak for myself and no other but the thought of suicide has crossed my mind quite a few times in the past. I won't take my own life, i'd rather take something head on ---- but anyhow I can see both sides of people telling others that someone is suicidal but I Hate how if you even mention something along the lines people freak out and councilors and whatnot get involved. More people get involved with your life and take it over.... or that is how I feel.
You may scrap this lil blog of thoughts if you wish but it was just something a bit on topic I wished to share. Cheers!
