http://survivorsofsuicide.ning.com

So, basically I created this site on a whim. I am a member of 20something bloggers and saw in very fine print that I could create a social network of my own. The first thing I thought of was "survivors of suicide." I lost my dad when I was 16 to suicide and it has changed my life in so many ways. I am on 3 committees for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), the Los Angeles chapter, including the upcoming walk this October in Santa Monica, CA.

what I want..

I want everyone who comes to this site to feel welcome, safe, and not alone. "Every 16 minutes someone in the U.S. dies by suicide. Every 17 minutes someone is left to make sense of it." Here, we can share our stories or pictures, meet people with similar stories, and begin the long journey to healing.

So welcome, even though I know it's sort of like a "club" no one ever wants to be apart of. Just know that here you will always find a virtual hug and a smile...
