What did you do this weekend? Did you spend time studying and catching up on homework? Or did you spend time hanging out with friends? Or did you participate in the Out of the Darkness Walk?

Saturday, Sept. 15, was the walk for suicide prevention. It began at 8:30 a.m. and ended at 10:30 a.m. at Carthage Junior High School. It was very successful despite the hot and humid weather conditions. There were a total of 61 walkers whose ages ranged from 4 to 71 years old. At the end of the walk participants received awards, including youngest walker, oldest walker, and farthest traveler. The recipient of the farthest traveler award traveled all the way from Arizona just to take part in this event.

Overall the awareness walk was successful and raised a lot of support from the community. Just a reminder to check on your friends and notices any changes in behavior. Help them seek help before it is too late. As Diana Bonds stated, “They aren’t wanting to end their life, they are wanting to end their pain.”
