    I love the song but if someone told me to abort my child which whom is STILL ALIVE, I'll dump him. I don't care if we didn't want a child. Abortion is murder in my eyes.

    I've been in the position of the first verse of the song. Won't go into vivid details but deployed to Afghanistan in 2011 to 2012 in the Army. If anyone is going through the sh** and feels like today is the day, please do not hesitate to call or text me. My name is Anthony and my number is 317-724-0060. The holidays are coming up and many of us are alone thinking about the families we've lost, the friends that aren't here today. Keep this uppermost in your mind, you're not alone. Lean on me my brothers and sisters. "You see, there are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity."- M.

    I have struggled with suicide all my life. My fiance cheated on me while I was deployed (2003). 10 Years later I thought I found my forever love. It only turns out, it was over after 2.5 years of marriage. Every day is a struggle not to pull the trigger. I am just tired of failing; I failed as a husband, father, friend, and Marine. I just cannot do this anymore.... Alone in a city with no one around. No one would ever know.

    I lost my other mom what I called my step mom to suicide. It is hard. I make sure I talk to everyone just even a hello to people that are strangers in the grocery or whatever store I am in. You never know might make a person feel better that day. I have been there with a gun in my hand ready to end my life. I was a teenager. But my dad called me on our house phone and said I just wanted to see how my day went and it changed my whole life. But he pass in 2012 and his wife (my other mom) took her own life July 2016. I miss them both. But I just make sure I call my family weekly and tell them I love them.

    My ex-fiance told me once that he had made the plan to commit suicide the day he met me. He went to church to try to change his mind. He told me if I hadn't approached him that day and made him feel welcome he would have committed suicide. I am glad that I did, because months later he rescued me from my abusive parents.

    In the beginning, I wish we could've of called my brother that night. But it was too late. That scene was exactly how he died. In his chevy, in the ditch. He was drunk and thought his life would be over with a DUI. So he ended it with his pistol. This happened 3 weeks ago. He was only 21. I love you little brother. Wish you were here.

    My wife attempted suicide 15 years ago and w(en I close my eyes I can see everything. The pills, the note, everything. She is better today and can’t understand how it got that bad, but she is thankful she is still here. She saw our daughter and son get married. Was there when our grandson was born and so much more. She doesn’t remember but I do, April 4th is a day of hope and a day of gratitude. If you are at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on and call the national suicide hotline number. tel:1-800-273-8255. Regardless of what you think, someone will miss you and will blame themselves for not seeing the signs. Don’t wait, reach out to someone and tell them how you feel, even if that means scaring the shit out of them and telling them, I want to kill myself. The down side, you spend 3 days in the psych ward,the up side, you are still breathing! There is no easy way out, no matter which side you are on. If you are the lifeline realizes early on, you will never really understand the the turmoil. If you are the subject realize early on your suicide will not go down easy. It will be hard and WILL NEVER BE ACCEPTED. Stay strong and pray as I did, Our Father, who art in heaven.... I wish for you all the best.

    I couldn’t even get through the first 30 seconds before I paused the video.........this strikes a cord with me because I have friends in the military. Some are active duty, some aren’t. But just the thought of this.......grips my very spirit with fear........
    This past Sunday, a friend of mine told a group of our friends about his 4 year tour in Afghan while in the Army. He told us about how one night, he and one of his friends were guarding the Armory. His friend got up to go to the bathroom and took his gun with him.........his friend never came back. He ended up shooting himself 3 times. My friend said that he felt guilty, because he thought he could have done something to stop it. My friend said that a few months after this happened......he tried to kill himself............
    That story still rings in my heart.

    2012. My daughter died at birth, and the love my life left me 2 weeks after we lost her. A month later my dog was run over and killed. I felt so numb and alone. One night I got in my car and drove to Chesapeake Bay Bridge, with the intent to end it all. Right as I got there, I asked God to forgive me and told Him if there was any reason to live... Give me a sign. My best friend literally called in that moment... Said she was on her way to see me, BC she felt like I needed a friend for a few days. She saved my life that night. And I am so thankful someone called.

    Just know that your life matters, even if someone has told you otherwise or you feel like you can't make it another day or minute. God had a reason for you being born & that you can bet on. He loves us so much that he knows exactly how many hairs we have on our heads! I've lost 2 family members to suicide (an uncle & a cousin) & it still hurts. I know that a lot of us often let another person's opinion of us dictate our happiness cuz I used to do the same thing. But when we find Jesus, He becomes our everything. My earthly father told us growing up that we'd never amount to anything & for a very long time I let him cause me to believe it. I raised my son by myself but never felt worthy. BUT now I have 4 beautiful grandkids who I'm very close with. We live in 2 different states now but when we talk on the phone they tell me they miss me & love me so much. It makes my heart melt especially when the youngest who just turned 11 last month telss me Nana you're an angel. No she's the angel that God gave us. My DIL has asked me on more than 1 occasion to talk to 1 or the other for this reason or that cuz she just didn't know what to do or say. They know Nana doesn't play BUT they also know that Nana LOVES them very much. They're my heart. I said all of that to just give y'all a window to see thru not to get a pat on the back cuz God knows I'm FAR FROM PERFECT. But I just wanted y'all to know that you're all important!!
    GOD Bless everyone of y'all & if anyone needs a Nana to talk to, I'm here for you!!!! Love y'all!!!!

    My pastor told a story once. When he was a teenager he took his double barrel shotgun out into the woods planning on taking his life, he took one round of 12 gauge birdshot so nobody would doubt it was on purpose. Halfway there he scared up a rabbit. Being avid hunter out of reflex he shot and hit the rabbit. Realizing what he had done he prayed to God, knowing God had put that rabbit there. He took the rabbit home for dinner.
    Many years later he tells me the story not knowing I struggled with suicidal thought alot.
