I don't know if l just never paid attention, but I don't remember seeing commercials about suicide awareness until recently. I think maybe within the last week was the first time I can remember seeing one. Have these been around for a while?

Let me know when you see a how to. Then I'll know the networks are run by semi-intelligent balls of lint.

The suicide rates drastically increase around the holidays, so there are more P.S.A.'s about them....

I think its sad when people in society need a commercial to encourage them to get help instead of a real life person or role model.

I think it's sad that some guy on the internet thinks there's going to be a real person or role model in that potentially suicidal person's life there to encourage them to get help.

That's because that Suicide has taken the lead over car accidents in number of deaths.

Must be the booming recovery.

Heading north on I-35 between Georgetown and Belton there's a billboard that says, "CONSIDERING SUICIDE? Let Jesus help you"

Well, I wasn't considering it until I saw your enormous billboard..

Of course about 5 miles further on is an even bigger billboard with a pic of FBHO with the slogan, "Bankrupt America? YES WE CAN!"
