Keep Pushing Forward
While most Americans were at the polls casting their votes on November 8, #SeeSomethingSaySomething teens were capturing personal narratives from Taos middle and high-school students in support of our new teen suicide prevention campaign.
Witnessing teens shedding tears and fighting for the lives of other teens? Powerful is an understatement!
We know last night’s election came with a few surprises. And as a Person of Color who questions whether my interests (and safety) will be on the agenda of the new administration, I understand how upsetting today can be.
But here’s the deal. To fight for representation and opportunities, we have to be living first. And that’s what our work here is all about. We have much to look forward to. We’re still here able to fight another day.
As Harlo (a suicide attempt survivor) reminded us yesterday, life really is precious. We must keep pushing forward.
