A good friend of mine has a tough job. He does marketing and tech stuff for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. It’s an organization that helps people who are thinking about committing suicide or dealing with the loss of a loved one.
A few days ago my friend helped launch this site The Lifeline Gallery which is an interactive gallery of people’s stories of loss. They discuss their own battles with suicide or how they are dealing with loss. The concept is quite brilliant. A person creates an avatar or likeness of themselves. They can either call in their stories or type their stories and the computer will speak the words. This creates a beautiful quilt of visual stories all dealing with suicide. Although the site is tough to stay on for too long, I think it really addresses the issue in an engaging, tasteful way.
Please support this cause and check out the site. I think you will find it as moving as I did.
