I found Karen C’s article “50 Reasons to Live” extremely motivating for teens contemplating suicide. I loved how you talk about your life before the note so the reader can see where you’re coming from. Once you get to the point where you talk about the note and say “words wouldn’t come; my pen wouldn’t form them” I had a sense of happiness and I was glad. Every word and phrase in the list was true, you can change the world and there are people out there who are going through the same thing. Thank you, Karen for showing suicidal people that there’s more to life and things can change for the better. I hope your life will continue to change and you can have a happy life.
