This past week PAL put on Yellow Ribbon Week. Yellow Ribbon Week is suicide awareness week. Not many people are aware of this serious issue that happens in our society today. The rate of suicide that happened raised 24% from 1999 to 2014. Chances are that you probably know someone who either has committed suicide, has attempted, or had or has suicidal thoughts. Twenty-five attempts at suicide are made for every one successful one.

Suicide affects everyone around. It affects the family, the friends, and the entire community as they attempt to process how someone could just be gone. This is portrayed in Netflix’s new series, 13 Reasons Why. Even if one is not close with the person who took their life, it still is difficult to comprehend. Another great portrayal of the effects of a suicide on the community is a new up and coming musical, Dear Evan Hansen, where a boy, Connor, who is hated by his sister and father due to his drug use, takes his life and the main character, Evan, pretended that he was his good friend as to change the way that the sister and father think of their family member and end up leaving an impact on many more.

PAL is trying to raise awareness of this serious cause by making posters, creating videos, and even opening up an opportunity for a student to anonymously text one of the members on PAL if they are feeling depressed, lonely, or just if they want a new friend and this will continue on into the next few weeks. If you are ever struggling just remember that you are never alone and there is always something for which worth fighting.
