My brother committed suicide when I was 16 (He was 18) and there have been 2 other students from my school who have committed suicide. It made me question my faith and beliefs. Why would God let my brother feel so low? However, I had to understand that bad things happen in this world. It is our job to be the hands and feet of Jesus to make the world a better place. We have to get to know God to be completely satisfied. It made me want to make a change; get more people to talk. I could really relate to the movie "To Save A Life." After all, I want my friends/family to know I love them.. I don't want anyone to feel that low. I want them to know they are loved. I want them to know about God. Isn't he enough to live for. IF Jesus had to die in our place.. shouldn't we live for him?

I was picked on from 2004-2012 all throughout grade school and high school. I could not handle it so I started to do self harm. I don't know how I survived. I felt just like Johnny. This movie hits close to home. After 8 years of being picked on/bullied, I'm here to tell you that you can get through anything if you just believe and hope.

I know what it is like to feel alone. When I started middle school, all my friends changed or went to a different school. I felt alone. Then a girl, Aimee, decided to be friends with me. I felt overjoyed until she committed suicide. I felt sad. I thought it was my fault until i realized that it wasn't my fault, and that I couldn't do anything about it.

I am 42 yrs old and I am glad I watched the movie; it was well written and the life lessons can be educational for both youth and adults.<br /> <br /> There is no way I cannot tell my entire story in 175 words or less but here we go. I grew up as a foster child and lived in many homes. I was abused in every shape and fashion starting when I was a baby; I was rejected by many and received by few. I struggled for many years; thought of suicide for many times. My turning point was an ex-girlfriend of mine (we dated in our late teens) who told me that unless I could come up with 100 reasons why I should commit suicide I have no business even thinking about it! I am happy to report that I could not come up with 100 reasons and since 1995 Jesus Christ is Lord over me and has healed my brokenness. Thank You Jesus! <br />

Hello. I'm from Brazil and I've been thinking a lot about killing myself. Usually my hobby is watching movies. I know how it feels to feel alone. I believe it to be one of the worst things in the world. I cut myself and when my parents found out they did not judge me, when I needed them. This movie made me see the real meaning of life. It helped me a lot. Thank you.

I grew up in the hood but I had a decent life. I don't know what any of you are going through but I do know what it is like to be abandoned by the ones who you love. I just want to say if you are thinking of taking your life think twice and look around at the beautiful life God has given you and if you need someone to talk to give me a message because I just don't think it's worth it.

My parent wasn't even proud of me even though I'm an achiever in school. It's kind of I don't know what to do. They want me to be perfect but how? No one is perfect. I don't know! For other people they care but me, they don't even try to ask me if I'm okay. I always cry because I tried lots of things so they would make time for me but no one did. No one was with me even friends I don't have. I tried to kill myself but this movie encouraged me not to. I always ask myself before anything I do WWJD? What Would Jesus Do? It was also a movie that inspired me.

Hello guys. I just read a few of your stories. I thought I had a tough life, but I get stronger in every "down" in my life. And I keep the straight in my "ups." It helps me every time. I hope you have the same. Every problem makes you stronger. Every relationship which doesn't last makes you stronger. Yes, it will hurt in the beginning but after a few weeks, it'll change! <br /> <br /> loveyou guys<br /> xxx

Hey all. I lost my boyfriend to a tragic motorcycle accident last week, Friday (5 September) and had thought about suicide after that. I felt lost without him and didn't want to carry on with life feeling as empty as I did but then I found a flyer about a Grief Group in his one jacket pocket that started the following Sunday (7 September) and I attended. Since then I have asked God every day for strength and I am feeling better and stronger. There are tough times but I know He is always with me, and so is my late boyfriend.

On the 17th of July..I found out who I really was!! I found myself hiding behind all the cuts and bruises, thoughts, tears and my own image.<br /> After watching "To Save a Life" it's made me think and I've been sitting in my room crying to either go on Gods path or stay alone or to have Someone like God give direction to my life. <br /> I just want to say you may not think anyone cares about you but God cares and so do people you may not even know. I was walking home from school and had a man ask me if I was okay and he saw my cuts and told me to be strong that everything will get better. That man didn't know me but he cares. You just need to believe in yourself guys, by being the better person. You can save a life. I am now friends with people who cut and I can guarantee that you can save a life.

I once wanted to kill myself; you guys are not alone. Guys don't do it. You are killing yourself and God does not like that so enjoy your life and get married and have a couple kids. I know that is what I want to do with my life. Remember one thing though, God's not dead.
