  • REACHING OUT

    Wake Up Call

    One phone call changed my entire life around. Well it was December 2009 and I was just about through my first semester of college, and for the past 11 years I had thought seriously about killing myself except what was holding me back was my family and friends who cared about me.

This is touching.

If you see someone new at the school you just walk over and say hi.
Chris Napolion, Vicksburg

This commercial really inspired me! I was in Sunday School a while ago, and the ten-year-old granddaughter of the teacher was there. She doesn't go to our church, and she was sitting at a table with the teacher and the assistant. I could tell she wanted to sit with somebody else without having to ask, so I asked her to sit beside me. Her whole face just lit up, and she thanked me again and again. It felt so good to do that, I try to do it every day at least once. Thank you!
