Last week, this postcard appeared on the popular PostSecret[1st][etc], a blog in which people anonymously share their secrets via postcard.
"In seven days over 50,000 of you joined an online community[fb] offering encouragement and help.And as the site says every week: State by state resources. LGBTQ youth in the USA: 1-866-4-U-TREVOR. Canadian resources, with a special nod to the long-running and incredibly helpful Kids Help Phone, 1.800.668.6868). Outside North America.)
Today (Sunday) at noon hundreds are meeting on the Golden Gate Bridge to take a stand against suicide at the very place where it happens most in the world. (You're invited, look for the yellow balloons and ribbons).
This hopeful story has received international press coverage including this first report on Time Magazine's NewsFeed.
I haven't heard from the person who mailed this postcard, but I have heard from many who have felt lifted by this flashmob of kindness."
