On the 10th of September to take part in #shemakesme. This was in recognition of world suicide prevention day. I was going to write a blog to say how proud I was that so many people took part. I was also going to say how amazing it was to see so many messages blowing up social media from 7 in the morning until midnight. But I won’t.
I will just give you a snippet of some of the messages.
The headline of this blog, “#shemakesme a proud son “was a message my son put on facebook. That one message made me understand that all the hard work involved in something like this is more than worth it.
Here is our #shemakesme silent prayer.
