Technology is so cool. I use an android device for my cell phone. Because Android is a Google creation I have the power of Google in the palm of my hands (rarely ever up to my ear). Months ago I did some Google searching on "suicide awareness", I'm not certain what the reason was, but I did it. Today I received a notification of a Teen Vogue article written related to suicide awareness!!
The article specifically talks about a new song that the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline partnered with three artists to write "1-800-273-8255." That's right, the title of the song is the phone number to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
Give a listen.
From the article;
“In 1-800, we hear a person at the end of their rope who has called the suicide prevention lifeline. Plain and simply; they are ready to commit suicide, feeling they have nowhere else to turn and are expressing the reasons why they wish to commit this act," Logic said in a press release. "We then hear words from the perspective of the lifeline operator who in turn gives them many reasons to keep fighting for their life; expressing that this act is a permanent solution to a temporary situation. Finally, we hear the caller express their new lease on life and outlook on a life that they thought was over but had actually been far from it all along."
