|Painless Suicide presents possible opportunity.|
I have written on a broad range of topics on the blog. Some might say, too broad. But one post stands out - Painless Suicide - A Complete Guide To Suicide. Initially, people were shocked by the title, but then they started reading the post. It tells you that their is no painless suicide. The pain may go away for you, but it will just go to someone else. And they'll be left wondering why.
Each month, the post gets more and more hits. It's #1 on Google, if you search "Painless Suicide". Thousands of people have seen the post. Over a hundred have left comments, "Thank you, you saved my life." It's a powerful piece and the positive impact it is having is immense.
As I sit, trying to figure out my life, I thought, "Why not publish the post and the comments into a book." It would be a powerful read and an insight into the pain that people bring to the post. Then I thought, "Why not begin speaking on the subject?" There are a number of things I've learned and can add to the original concept. I could certainly go out and talk on the subject, having been the lone voice out there with such a powerful message.
The next step would be to form a foundation. A suicide prevention foundation.
These may sound like more manic ideas from me, but I think there is a need in society for someone to actively work on suicide prevention. Those thousands of people who have looked at the blog didn't do it because everything was all right in their world. There is a lot of pain in society and a positive voice would probably be welcome.
It's just a thought. I'm struggling right now and this idea came to me today and I thought I'd share it with you.
I have a friend who is a professional speaker, but I'd need help with how to set up a foundation - where to begin, etc.
This may be another idea that goes nowhere, but I think there is something there. Let me know your thoughts. Let me know if Painless Suicide presents a possible opportunity.
