I was baby-sitting, @ the Brownell's, when my Mom called me & told me what happened. I think we were all in shock because back then, it was a different time & place, & those things only happened in movies...not in real life. But....that wasn't the case.

I have taken this pledge because I, too, am no stranger to the anguish and pain that bring people to suicide.

Thanks, Marcie...I just signed this pledge but I didn't know it was going to post on my wall. It's a pledge to not treat suicide as a taboo subject because it isolates all the people who are left behind. I feel I am pretty open about it so I gladly signed the pledge! I appreciate your hugs and love!

It's so weird but I was looking at an old video I had taped of "Fire by Night" (an old show my kids watched in their teens) right after I wrote my response to you. This episode was all about suicide...I am watching it now. Weird, huh?

I take the pledge for my husband Chris that we lost 3/4/10 at the age of 34. I hope by spreading the awareness lives can be saved and us survivors will some day not have to live with all the questions and heartbreak and the blaming others do to us over the death.

I have taken the pledge becausein the past I knew how tempting it can be to end it all when you have no one to talk to and no one seems to understand.

I'm so glad to hear you talking about it now, I too have had the feelings of wanting to end it all.
I thank God, someone cared enough to stay with me to see me through the pain. She said she didn't really understand my feelings, but she said she cared and she listened and would stay with me. I'm so sorry we didn't see the signs of depression my sweet nephew Kevin must have been feeling the morning he died by suicide.He had so many close friends that he grew up with and stayed close to, not...

I'm so sorry we didn't see the signs of depression my sweet nephew Kevin must have been feeling the morning he died by suicide.He had so many close friends that he grew up with and stayed close to, not one of his buddies had a clue. it was such a shock to everyone. He had everything to look forward to, we thought he was happy.
The night before he was laughing with his Mom and Dad and sister. Everyone loved him so much !

I pledge to always start a conversation about suicide and depression. Mental illness happens in every family. Their is no shame in having feelings of depression or suicide, reach out and talk to anyone . People do really care . Just start talking about how your feeling.

IN MEMORY OF KEVIN JANIKOWSKI My nephew, my sister & brother in-law's beloved son. Kevin's sister and best friend. His very close friend since he was four years old who always and still loves him . He has many good friends, Aunt's and Uncles and cousin's who care .
We have all learned many lesson's and will always reach out and be aware of any signs someone may be feeling alone.
