Brittany - Posted on February 08, 2015

Hi, my name is Brittany and I am 16 years old. 3 years ago I was bullied on my bus and people threw things at me like food and erasers and broken pencils and then called me names like poof because of my hair. They did this every day, then I had enough and wanted to kill myself. I wrote on a piece of paper and showed my teacher which she showed every one of the teachers and the counselors. They notified my parents and my parents ran home but I wasn't there. I was at track practice so they called the principal and he found me and said I needed to call my parents and I did. Then I went home to my parents. Now, I believe in God and do what's right and God has given me the strength to help other people. May the Lord be with you.

Wierdo - Posted on February 06, 2015

One day in intermediate school, I tried to fit in as a new kid until everyone thought that I was just some girl trying to get in everyone's way because I had a crush. Everyone just ignored me. I felt like I was worthless and I should have died. So I cut myself on my arm, until I saw your movie. I felt like God was speaking to me. I was thinking I had another chance. So I decided to follow God and see what my purpose is. I thank this movie for saving my life. I could have had a billion scars, thanks, a million.

Chelsea - Posted on February 05, 2015

After a series of hard losses and changes in my life I became severely depressed and anxious. I started cutting when I was 13. My depression turned into suicidal thoughts, then attempts. My mom kept praying for me but I refused to believe. I went for my first psych hospital visit at the end of eighth grade. To fast forward, after two more visits to the hospital I ended up in rehab. Then on January 27th 2011 I had a horrible panic attack, but I had nothing to cut with. And all alone in my rehab room I remembered my mom's words telling me to pray, so I said "God if you're there please take this out of me," and instantly a peace came over me. My life has changed for the better ever since. My scars remind me of God's love to bring me out of darkness. We all have a breaking point. When you get there call out to Jesus. He has been waiting eagerly for you the entire time.

Luana - Posted on February 05, 2015

Hello, my name is Luana. I am 18 years old and I am Brazilian. I don't have much to complain about in my life. I also had a broken home, and I did a lot of stupid things in my short life. I don't have anything concrete, I'm weak and sinful. I just want to say that God is everything. Don't you ever forget that. Even in the worst moments he's with us, really, and the ordeal comes to prove that we are more! We are human and make mistakes, but recognizing our mistakes, salvation awaits us. We are children of God and the best is ahead!

Gracie - Posted on February 02, 2015

I don't have very many friends and recently my best friend ditched me to become popular. I was bullied badly when I was younger but I've learned that I've got a friend in the Lord. I'm not suicidal but a family member killed himself. I watched To Save A Life twice this weekend and it has really inspired me. I've spent a lot of time thinking about it and about life, I would like to help in any way I can even if it's just listening or giving advice/ encouragement. <br /> God bless <br /> Gracie xxx

JJ - Posted on January 30, 2015

My name is JJ and I am 15 years old. My life was a mess. I couldn't make sense of anything. And I can't say that everything is perfect today, but I can say that if it weren't for God I wouldn't be here. I struggled with fear for many years of my life--paralyzing fear. It strangled the life out of me. However, God saved me from my fear. I wanted to praise Him for that with my whole life, but I kept on failing, ending up right back where I started. I constantly struggled with shame and self worth. I felt that I was worthless. I fell into depression and suicidal thoughts, but in my time of greatest need, God rescued me! God saved me from my depression and is continuing to save me day by day. I believe He will do the same for you, if you let Him.

Alanna - Posted on January 29, 2015

Without my youth group, I would not be here today. When everything was going wrong, they were there, and they opened their arms to me. My youth pastor helped me through the darkest days, and I will be forever grateful for that. After watching this movie in my youth group, I've seen the affect it has on thousands of other people by reading some of the stories on this site. God has changed my life. He has brought amazing people into my life, and has shown me that there is so much more for me to live for. Leaving this earth wasn't the plan for me, and without God, I never would have known that.<br /> <br /> I want to be here for anyone who needs to talk. I know what its like to feel alone, and I will spend the rest of my life helping those who feel the same way. You are not alone. You are loved. and God has a plan for you.<br /> Please. Talk to someone. You are not alone.

Diana - Posted on January 27, 2015

Hello my name is Diana. I am 17 years old. A year ago I accepted Jesus as my one and only savior. But a few years ago I suffered bullying and felt very sad, to the level of wanting to kill myself. I believe it was God who made me not have the courage to commit such an act and now I can see why. Today I am another person; I am truly happy. And I can only thank God for all he has done in my life. And congratulations for this film, which is a blessing. It's a great life lesson for those who suffer or have suffered from some of the problems in the film. And I just have to say that God is good no matter the circumstance. He is always with us. Thank you for your attention. Stay in the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ!

Germaine - Posted on January 27, 2015

I'm not that old but I think I`ve seen a lot in my life. Six years ago I was lost but after I met Jesus, I found the real meaning of life and following him and being optimist with whatever he gives me is the real happiness. If you need anything, I`ll be here cause I really wanna save a life.

Jon - Posted on January 27, 2015

I was bullied a lot in school. I graduated in May of 2014. In school I was on drugs but a swimmer and a wrestler and good ones but I was also bullied and I tried to kill myself 4 times because I was so unhappy. I was adopted at the age of 5 and my dad who adopted me died when I turned 11. He died June 1st and my birthday is May 23rd. I was mad at God for all of it. I had a record with the police but my senior year I found God and found out that I can't live without him.
