Trigger warning: talk about suicide
Buzzfeed posted an article and video about Kevin Hines, a man who jumped of the Golden Gate Bridge and lived. I thought the video was very powerful. So I thought I would share it with you all.
Please remember that if you are suffering from suicidial thoughts that there are people that care about you. I hope Kevin’s message is heard far and wide. Please seek help if you are experiencing suicidial thoughts.
