While this is in no way law-related, I encourage all of you to take some time and check out this incredible organization that my brother Alex and his talented group of friends have started. They have lost a couple of close friends to suicide while they were students at Mizzou. Both deaths came as a total surprise to everyone, as these young adults were the lives of the party and showed no signs of being suicidal.
Rather than allow their friends to become mere statistics, my brother and his friends have decided to start a group to get the uncomfortable topic of suicide out into the open and begin the discussion that can save lives. They have decided to make a documentary, and this week they started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money. Hoping to maybe raise $10,000 over a few months, this campaign has already raised $20,000 in 48 hours.
Please check out the powerful video on this site, consider making a donation, and please pass this on to your friends and family. They also have a website for their documentary, which is also worth checking out. No donation is too small.
