Suicide Prevention Awareness

“If you are looking for a sign not to kill yourself, this is it.” – Unknown

From September 12th- 16th, in honor of Suicide Prevention Awareness month, I will be offering “The Voiceless” for free in digital format.  “The Voiceless” deals with the subject matter of suicide and the hope one finds in the aftermath of a suicide attempt.

It is important for me that you all know my intentions in offering “The Voiceless” for free for five days.  Suicide is not a matter I take lightly and I wouldn’t dream of exploiting its seriousness.  It’s a subject matter that has touched my life in a personal manner.  So, the reason I am doing this is because as a struggling artist, the only thing I feel I can do is occasionally offer my work for free.  And in doing this with “The Voiceless”, I am not looking to boost future sales, nor am I looking for compliments about my work, nor am I looking for an increase in reviews.  But if there is even a chance that someone out there reads “The Voiceless” and is changed for the better, finds hope in the darkness that is their life, or thinks twice about taking their own life, then I am reaching my goal. I don’t need to know about it.  Just the thought of the possibility of it is rewarding enough.  If I reap any other benefits, I will be thankful just the same. Thank you for your understanding.

And remember….

YOU matter.  Your life matters. There is hope.
